2 different cans of Party Dog canned dog food. Dogs Food Advisor alert just came over.

They have a really big problem. I always thought that was one of the better foods.

Is this an Evanger product? I didn't see them in the alert.

Evanger
is the manufacturer, co-packer.

I looked under Party Dog Food and more information on the recall came up.

Sheesh. Their sourcing is a huge problem. Not good.

If this site's to be believed, it's not just sourcing. Pretty gross. http://truthaboutpet...food-troubles/.

The numbers do not work out for contaminated meat being the source of the pentobarbital in the dog food.

 

Euthanasia dose for dogs or livestock is >85mg/kg body weight.  The drug quickly becomes evenly distributed throughout the body (based upon some reports from reliable sources).  This means 1kg of contaminated meat would contain ca. 85mg pentobarbital.  The dog would need to consume its body weight in the contaminated meat found in the pet food in order for it to be lethal; in order for the dog to get 85mg/kg of pentobarbital.

 

We're still not getting all of the information; some key fact (how dogs are getting near lethal doses from a normal portion of pet food) is still not known or being released to the public.  What is clear; there is an issue at the manufacturing plant either during production or in ingredient source(s).  Using euthanized animals for meat does not provide enough pentobarbital in a normal serving of pet food.

This latest issue was for cans processed in 2015 . It happened a while ago.

This reminds me of the Tylenol poisonings.

For those interested in learning about how this drug or others get distributed and then excreted from a body, the field of study is pharmacokinetics

I raised the same doubts as Mark in the other topic. It is a really weird case of contamination.
