Pentobarbital found in route to dog food!

This is another important dog food recall notice.

The first of the New Year but I suspect if will be far from the last.


Dear Fellow Dog Lover,

I’m pleased to report there have been no dog food recalls issued since September 26, 2019.

Euthanasia Drug Discovered in Adulterated Animal Fat

The FDA recently discovered an animal euthanasia drug (pentobarbital) in test samples collected at a major supplier of animal fat to the pet food industry.

We’re unable to locate any information about which pet food brands may have purchased the affected ingredient.

For this reason, we recommend all dog and cat owners remain alert to the potential for future recalls related to this news.

Dog Food Recall Update

Some pet foods previously recalled may still be on store shelves… or in your own home. So, if you’ve missed any of the 11 recalls we’ve sent since July… be sure to visit our Dog Food Recalls page for full details.

  1. I got the same notice and read the entire warning letter and posted it on social media. Valley Proteins sure isn’t acting in good faith it seems. It will be interesting to see if the FDA has the will to enforce or will this get buried from lack of investigators much like puppy mill violators.
