Evanger's has expanded it's recall to include additional variations. (Evanger's Dog & Cat Food Company.)
Out of an abundance of caution, Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food is voluntarily expanding its recall of Hunk of Beef and is also recalling Evanger’s Braised Beef and Against the Grain’s Pulled Beef Products due to potential adulteration with pentobarbital. Oral exposure to pentobarbital can cause drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance, nausea, nystagmus (eyes moving back and forth in a jerky manner), inability to stand, coma and death. Consumers who notice these symptoms in their pets should consult their veterinarian.
I have a dog and a cat, and after searching and comparing- we found Evangers. Being from Deerfield, Il we were loved it was locally sourced out of Wheeling and family-owned. We use the Meat Lover's Melody dry cat food and the Chicken and Brown Rice dry dog food. We also feed them BOTH the game meat lines (ie: 100% buffalo, salmon, pheasant etc). Our dog goes INSANE for the Chicken Drummetts from the Hand-Packed line. They are basically just chicken wings, and there are even videos of people trying it on their facebook! So happy to have finally found our forever food brand!
