Feb. 16, 2018 -- The FDA on Friday warned pet owners that several popular brands of dog food have been found to include small amounts of a drug used to euthanize animals. 

The agency says it is investigating how pentobarbital wound up in certain shipments of Gravy Train, Kibbles 'N Bits, Ol’ Roy, and Skippy canned wet dog food.

While the levels we discovered were not lethal, pentobarbital is never permitted in the food supply at any concentration.

After releasing the results of lab tests that identified the drug, the FDA launched an investigation. And now, just days later, Smucker’s, the owner of almost all the brands in question, announcing a voluntary withdrawal. It includes products in the Gravy Train, Kibbles ‘N Bits, Skippy and Ol’ Roy lines of canned food.

Retailers, including the nation's largest, Walmart, removed it from all 4,700 stores.

The following products should not be fed to pets, but returned to the place of purchase for a full refund.

The way to identify the product is to look at the product name/description and UPC codes below:
