They said low levels of “pentobarbital” were found in cans of Gravy Train produced by the J.M. Smucker Company.

As a result, the J.M. Smucker Company is recalling several other lots of pet food products, including Kibbles ‘n Bits, Skippy and Ol’ Roy.

According to a statement from the FDA: “Pets that eat pet food containing pentobarbital can experience drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance, nausea, eyes that move back and forth in a jerky manner and inability to stand.”

If you bought these pet food products, throw them away and contact the J.M. Smucker Company for a full refund.
