Back on February 6th, we told you about a dog food recall concerning the Evanger’s brand, more specifically, the “Hunk of Beef” canned food.  The recall was due to a drug commonly used in euthanasia being found in the food, and one dog even died from eating it.  Now, there have been more of their products added to the recall, and it’s for the same reason.

On March 3rd, Evanger’s announced the addition of the “Braised Beef,” and “Against the Grain Pulled Beef” varieties to the recall.  Again, pentobarbital has been identified as the problem with these flavors as well, and Evanger’s is advising the immediate return of the affected products to the store they were purchased from.

The info on the product label you are looking for will contain the following information:

  • Evanger’s: Hunk of Beef: 20109
  • Evanger’s: Braised Beef: 20107
  • Against the Grain: Pulled Beef: 80001

The manufacture date of the products falls between December of 2015 and January of 2017, and will have expiration dates between December of 2019 and January of 2021.  The products were sold via the internet and available nationwide at boutique pet stores.

The list of symptoms your dog may be experiencing from eating the food include:

  • drowsiness
  • dizziness
  • excitement
  • loss of balance
  • nausea
  • nystagmus (eyes moving back and forth in a jerky manner)
  • inability to stand
  • coma
  • death
