Against the Grain Dog Food Recall of February 2017

Folks, you are NOT going to believe this, but there is yet another dog food recall. Another Evanger brand, Against The Grain, may be contaminated with pentobarbital. 

This is very disturbing because it causes one to wonder why exactly is this chemical continually being found in this pet food? Pentobarbital has a few medical uses, but when it pertains to animals, it is used for euthanasia. This causes me to wonder where this company is obtaining it’s meat sources. It’s unfortunate for all and I truly hope that no dogs are affected by this contaminated food.

Please read the details below and be sure to share this with friends and family!
