Several Dogs Sickened, One Death Attributed to Evanger’s Pet Food Contamination

Please check your cabinets for 12-ounce cans of Evanger’s Hunk of Beef with barcodes ending in 20109, Evanger’s Braised Beef with barcodes ending in 20107, and Against the Grain Pulled Beef with barcodes ending in 80001. All have expiration dates between December 2019 and January 2021.

The food is contaminated with an extremely dangerous drug called pentobarbital, which is used for euthanasia.

While Against the Grain brand dog food does not appear to be named in the recall, please note that “In the course of the investigation, the FDA tested two cans of Against the Grain brand canned Grain Free Pulled Beef with Gravy dog food manufactured in the same facilities as Evanger’s products and using beef from the same supplier: these samples also tested positive for pentobarbital,” FDA information states.”
