Manufacturers are recalling the following dog foods. If you think your dog has eaten any of the products or are in any doubts please contact the manufacturer or your local FDA agent.
Evanger’s and Against the Grain
Evanger’s Dog and Cat Food Company is expanding its recall of beef products over fears they may be contaminated with the fatal drug pentobarbital.
Pets who eat Pentobarbital show signs of dizziness, drowsiness, or excitement. They may suffer from nausea and a loss of balance and in extreme cases, death.
The three affected products in 12oz cans are listed below, with the second half of their barcode.
- Evanger’s Hunk of Beef (#20109)
- Evanger’s Braised Beef (#20107)
- Against the Grain Pulled Beef (#80001)
All three have expiration dates from December 2019 to January 2021.
EuroCan Manufacturing is recalling its pigs’ ears under the brands HoundsTooth, Mac’s Choice, Barnsdale Farms, and Barnsdale Farms Select over fears they may be contaminated with Salmonella.
All the products are individually shrink-wrapped, 25, 12 and 6 pack bags of pigs ears marked with Lot 84.
Owners are also at risk of Salmonella from handling the food. In serious cases, Salmonella can lead to endocarditis, arthritis, and urinary problems. Human symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, cramps, and fever.
Dogs with Salmonella can suffer bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. They will often have a decreased appetite.
