The FDA has announced that Against the Grain Pet Food is voluntarily recalling one lot of Against the Grain Pulled Beef with Gravy Dinner for Dogs that was manufactured and distributed in 2015.
The 12 oz. Against the Grain Pulled Beef with Gravy Dinner for Dogs that is being recalled, due to the potential presence of pentobarbital, has an expiration date of December 2019, a lot number of 2415E01ATB12, and the second half of the UPC code is 80001 (which can be found on the back of the product label).
Oral exposure to pentobarbital can cause side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance, nausea nystagmus (eyes moving back and forth in a jerky manner), inability to stand and coma.

NOTE: 1) It makes one wonder why two recalls in the last two weeks for pentobarbital and how is it getting into the food being produced? 2) Since this one was produced and sold in 2015, why are they just now finding it? 3) Pentobarbital is now most commonly used for euthanasia for dogs and cats, so this drug can kill.
