A TV station notified the firm and stated that certain varieties of their canned pet food products may contain Pentobarbital in low levels. The firm performed a safety assessment and concluded that no threat to pet safety was present. The firm agreed to conduct a product withdrawal, but the FDA considered this to be a recall once data indicated that the tallow was contaminated with pentobarbital.
