(MEREDITH) – Evanger's Dog & Cat food has expanded a voluntary recall of dog food products due to "potential adulteration with pentobarbital." The original recall was issued on February 27th, 2017.

Oral exposure to pentobarbital can cause side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance, nausea nystagmus (eyes moving back and forth in a jerky manner), inability to stand and coma. If you notice any of these symptoms in your pet, you should contact a veterinarian.

Here's some more information from the recall:

The 12 oz. cans of dog foods that are being voluntarily recalled have the following barcodes.  The numbers listed below are the second half of the barcode, which can be found on the back of the product label:

  • Evanger’s: Hunk of Beef: 20109
  • Evanger’s: Braised Beef: 20107
  • Against the Grain: Pulled Beef: 80001

The three products being voluntarily recalled were manufactured between December 2015 and January 2017, and have expiration dates of December 2019 through January 2021.  These products were distributed online and through independent boutique pet stores nationwide.

Consumers may return any can of these products to their place of purchase and receive a full refund. For any questions, customers may contact the company at 1-847-537-0102 between 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM Central Time, Monday - Friday.
