    Monkey's heads up! Dog food recall.

    Euthanasia drug found in dog food prompts recall
    Evanger's is voluntarily recalling some of its dog food after a drug that is used to anesthetize or put down pets was found in it.

    Pentobarbital was found in one lot of the dog food; five dogs got sick and one died, according to the Wheeling, Ill.-based company.

    Fifteen states are affected by the Hunk of Beef Au Jus recall. The 12-ounce cans were manufactured June 6-13 and sold in stores and online in Washington, California, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.

    As a precaution, Evanger's is recalling Hunk of Beef products manufactured the same week, with lot numbers that start with 1816E03HB, 1816E04HB, 1816E06HB, 1816E07HB and 1816E13HB, and expire June 2020. The second half of the barcode on the back of the label says 20109. The ill and deceased dogs ate from the 1816E06HB13 lot.

    Maybe if the economy goes really sideways they'll be serving in the Capital Cafeteria. (y)

    It can't be any worse than what planned parenthood was doing.

    Thanks for the info, shared it on facebook, surprised it wasn't in the 'trending news' section...but it wasn't as important as Nordstrom not doing Ivanka Trump's clothesline or what Britney Spear's little sister is doing I guess...
