A second dog food recall — this time by Against the Grain Pet Food Inc. — because of the barbiturate pentobarbital is underway in the wake of a recall of Evanger’s branded dog food, and it appears members of the same family own both companies.

Pentobarbital is a sedative often used to euthanize animals…

Consumers can identify the recalled 12-ounce Against the Grain canned dog food by looking for an expiration date of December 2019 and lot number of 2415E01ATB12. The recalled Against the Grain food also has a UPC number ending with 80001…

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 800-288-6796.

Eating food contaminated with pentobarbital can cause side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance, nausea nystagmus (with) eyes moving back and forth in a jerky manner, inability to stand and coma, according to the recall notice.
