Party Animal recently issued a voluntary recall of the brand’s Cocolicious canned dog foods, which were found to have the euthanasia drug pentobarbital during an independent test conducted by a customer in Texas. The testing was conducted on cans manufactured and distributed in 2015, with best by dates of July 2019 and August 2019.
The specific products are limited to:
Cocolicious Beef and Turkey 12-ounce cans (Lot # 0136E1520404, Best by July 2019)
Cocolicious Chicken and Beef (Lot # 0134E1523713, Best by August 2019)
According to a letter issued by Party Animal, the company has contacted all retailers that sell the product and asked them to determine whether the products are still on shelves. If so, they have been asked to retrieve them from shelves. CVA urges all customers with these products in their pantry to return them to the place of purchase or dispose of them immediately. As a precaution, Party Animal also submitted recent lots of its beef-flavored products for testing – all have tested negative for pentobarbital.
