The show may soon be over for Party Animal, which is the latest pet food manufacturer accused of product contamination. Party Animal is recalling several batches of its Cocolicious canned dog food amidst concerns that it contains barbiturate pentobarbital, a drug commonly used to euthanize humans and animals.

Cocolicious Chicken & Beef dog food from Lot 0134E15 237 13 (“Best by” date August 2019). Read more
