"The FDA's preliminary evaluation of the testing results of Gravy Train samples indicates that the low level of pentobarbital present in the withdrawn products is unlikely to pose a health risk to pets", reads Friday's FDA alert.

Taking action into their own hands, ABC7 partnered with Ellipse Analytics to independently investigate pet food for traces of euthanasia drugs.

The warning came after a media outlet reported the results of a study that found low levels of pentobarbital in some samples of Gravy Train canned dog food.

"However, the presence of this substance at any level is not acceptable to us and not up to our quality standards", said the company, which is based in Orrville, Ohio.

The FDA encourages consumers to report complaints about this and other pet food products electronically through the Safety Reporting Portal or by calling their state's FDA Consumer Complaint Coordinators. "We sincerely apologize for the concern this has caused", the company said online, explaining its recall of specific shipments of certain brands sprung "out of an abundance of caution". She shipped the remainder of the canned food to a special lab and drove Talula's body to a veterinary pathologist. It reads in part: "Please know our internal investigation into this situation is ongoing". The investigation by the company has been narrowed to one supplier and a minor ingredient that was used at the facility.

"Sodium pentobarbital is something we use very commonly for euthanasia", said Dr. Erica Feiste, an emergency veterinarian at Carolina Vet Specialists.

Manufactured by Smucker's owned company Big Heart Pet Foods, the line also produces Meow Mix, Milk Bone, Kibbles'n Bits, 9 Lives, Natural Balance, Pup-Peroni, Nature's Recipe, Canine Carry Outs, Milo's Kitchen, Alley Cat, Jerky Treats, Meaty Bone, Pounce and Snausages pet foods.

The news follows a recall notice the FDA issued last week following salmonella findings in ground turkey pet food made by the company Raws for Paws.
