    This is to up date previous posts, which I can't find at the moment, about the
    Phenobarbital found in Smuckers and Champion dog food. This isn't a new recall and it doesn't extend the earlier ones, it is merely more information.


    JBS knowingly distributed products containing euthanasia drug | Food Safety News

    "The warning letter to JBS Souderton Inc. which does business as MOPAC was sent more than one year after phenobarbital was first discovered in beef tallow from the company’s Souderton, PA, facility.
    JBS was the supplier of beef tallow to Big Heart Pet Brands Inc. and to Champion PetFoods, among others.

    Big Heart is a wholly owned subsidiary of The J.M. Smucker Company Inc. Champion is a Canadian pet food company whose U.S. production facility is in Auburn, KY. It manufactures Acana and Orijen brands of dry dog food."


    General information - Big Heart brand includes Meow Mix, Kibbles 'n Bits, Milk-Bone, 9Lives, Natural Balance, Pup-Peroni, Gravy Train, Nature’s Recipe, Canine Carry Outs, and Milo’s Kitchen. Ever Pet, Special Kitty.

    Once they opened the KY manufacturing plant the formula changed for the worse and I stopped buying Acana for our dog. Actually he must have noticed the difference because he didn't even want to eat it - smart dog! ;)
