What’s the Problem?
The dog food recall was announced by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) on February 14, 2017, and includes only one flavor and one lot of Against the Grain Pulled Beef with Gravy Dinner for Dogs.
Affected products were distributed in 12-ounce cans with an expiration date of December 2019, lot number 2415E01ATB12, and UPC number ending with 80001.
“In 2015, this one lot of product was distributed to independent pet retail stores in Washington and Maryland, though it has been verified that this lot is no longer on any store shelves,” the FDA recall notice said. “Consumers may return any can with the aforementioned lot number, to their place of purchase and receive a full case of Against the Grain food for the inconvenience.”
Phenobarbital Side Effects in Dogs
Eating food contaminated with pentobarbital can cause pets to experience side effects including:
- Loss of balance
- Nystagmus (eyes moving back and forth in a jerky manner)
- Inability to stand
FDA is advising pet owners who notice these symptoms in their pets to contact their veterinarian immediately.
