Another pet food recall for potentially containing a drug used for euthanasia mostly of dogs, cats, and horses.  13 ounce cans of Cocolicious Beef & Turkey dog food and Cocolicious Chicken & Beef dog food have been voluntarily recalled by the food's manufacturer, Party Animal.  The recall was triggered after a customer submitted cans of these two foods to an independent testing lab where the products apparently tested positive for the drug, pentobarbital.

Although no reports of a pet dying due to the food has been reported, the company says the recalled cans can be returned for a full refund.  The recall cans are Cocolicious Beef & Turkey dog food with a Lot #0136E15204 04 and best by date of July 2019, as well as Cocolicious Chicken & Beef dog food with a Lot #0134E15 237 13 and best by date of August 2019.
