Dog food recalled because product may contain euthanasia drug

Dog food recalled because product may contain euthanasia drug

California-based pet food maker Party Animals recently announced a voluntary recall for a couple of lots of its Cocolicious dog food after inspectors warned that it might contain pentobarbital.

Pentobarbital is a dangerous chemical that is often used to euthanize animals. This chemical has been tested positive in the 13 ounce cans of Cocolicious Beef & Turkey dog food as well as Cocolicious Chicken & Beef dog food.

Confirming the recall, the company said, “The safety of pets is and always will be our first priority. We sincerely regret the reports of the discomfort experienced by the pet who consumed this food. As pet parents ourselves, we take this matter seriously.”

The 13-ounce cans of Cocolicious Beef & Turkey dog food and Cocolicious Chicken & Beef dog food have Lot #0136E15204 04 with best by July 2019 and Lot #0134E15 237 13 with best by August 2019, respectively.

The pet food maker is now working with retailers across the United States to ensure that all of the recalled products are removed from the shelves. The company has also had other lots of their beef products tested and they tested negative for the dangerous chemical.
