Possible contamination with pentobarbital has led to the recall of certain lots of 12-oz Hunk of Beef dog food.

To date, reports indicate that five dogs became ill and one died after eating the food, according to Evanger's Dog & Cat Food.

Dogs that consume pentobarbital can suffer drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance, nausea, and possibly death.

The recalled lots of dog food were made during the week of June 6-13, 2016 and distributed to retail locations and sold online in Washington, California, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.
