Gravy Train, Ol’ Roy, other brands recalled for euthanasia drug
Food Safety News – February 15, 2018a

“Clean Label Project’s 2017 Pet Food Study revealed high levels of heavy metals, BPA, and acrylamide in some of the nation’s best-selling pet food. The presence of pentobarbital in Gravy Train does not come as a surprise and the Evanger’s recall was not a one-off, rather the tip of the iceberg of an industry that needs to significantly improve its food safety and quality through testing,” says Clean Label Project Executive Director Jaclyn Bowen.

Drug used to put dogs down causes recall of Gravy Train, other dog food brands
Miami Herald – February 16, 2018

“One possible way [the drug got into the food] is through the use of contaminated ingredients,” Clean Label Project Executive Director Jaclyn Bowen explained in an email to the Miami Herald. “Rendering plants take slaughterhouse animal tissues and convert them into stable, usable materials like purified fats such as lard or tallow. This rendered material is then sourced by some pet food manufacturers and sold to consumers as wet and dry pet foods. It is possible that animals exposed to pentobarbital were included in the rendering process.”
