J.M. Smucker Co. is recalling shipments of certain dog food brands after a private investigation found traces of Pentobarbital—a euthanasia drug used to put down animals.

The company claims to be investigating how the drug got into the supply chain. According to the New York Post, they are looking at a specific supplier of one of the ingredients.

While the amounts of Pentobarbital weren’t enough to cause death, no amounts are allowed in dog food. Because duh. No one who loves their dog wants them eating any amount of a deadly drug. In fact, that’s the complete opposite of what you want.

Canned and/or wet foods from Ol’ Roy, Kibbles ‘N Bits, Skippy and Gravy Train are all on the list. You can see specific brand numbers and get more details on the recall at WebMD.
