Not approved by most veterinarians

This is about as bad a packaging error as exists:

Evanger’s is voluntarily recalling some of its dog food after a drug that is used to anesthetize or put down pets was found in it.

Pentobarbital was found in one lot of the dog food; five dogs got sick and one died, according to the Wheeling, Ill.-based company.

Fifteen states are affected by the Hunk of Beef Au Jus recall. The 12-ounce cans were manufactured June 6-13 and sold in stores and online in Washington, California, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.

Your dog wants table scraps — in preference to this stuff, anyway.

    Terrifying. I wonder if they’ll find out a “disgruntled employee” put it there. Apparently one of the recent chicken recalls (for sand and soil mixed in with the chicken) was the doing of someone who apparently thought it would be a good idea to dirty up the chicken before sending it out to the customers.
