Due to the potential presence of pentobarbital in the dog food, Against the Grain Pet Food is voluntarily recalling one lot of Against the Grain Pulled Beef with Gravy Dinner for Dogs that was manufactured and distributed in 2015, according to the US Food and Drug Administration.
The pet food recall 12-ounce Against the Grain Pulled Beef with Gravy Dinner for Dogs that is being voluntarily recalled has an expiration date of December 2019, a lot number of 2415E01ATB12, and the second half of the UPC code is 80001, which can be found on the back of the product label.
In 2015, this one lot of recalled dog food was distributed to independent pet retail stores in Washington and Maryland, though it has been verified that this lot is no longer on any store shelves. This voluntary recall only affects one specific lot of food.
Oral exposure to pentobarbital can cause side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance, nausea nystagmus (eyes moving back and forth in a jerky manner), inability to stand, coma and death.
No complaints of contamination
To-date, no complaints have been reported to Against the Grain for this single lot number nor any of Against the Grain’s pet foods, since the company was founded, according to the company.
Consumers may return any can with the aforementioned lot number, to their place of purchase and receive a full case of Against the Grain food for the inconvenience. For any questions, customers may contact the company at 1-800-288-6796 between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Central Time, Monday to Friday.
