The executive director of Clean Label Project, Jaclyn Bowen, MPH, MS will comment on the recent discovery of pentobarbital — the barbiturate euthanasia drug used to kill animals by veterinarians and animal shelters — in Gravy Train Dog Food products.
Results for 99 pet foods that were tested for pentobarbital have been published on its website today at cleanlabelproject.org
In 2017, Clean Label Project released a study after testing nearly 1,000 of the bestselling pet food products for 130+ environmental and industrial contaminants including heavy metals, BPA, pesticides, and other toxins. The results revealed high levels of lead (up to 5,450 PPB), arsenic (up to 5,550 PPB), cadmium (up to 3,512 PPB) and other toxins.
All of the blind data from the individual tests is published here: cleanlabelproject.org/pet-food-heavy-metals-blinded-raw-data/
All of the products tested are also rated via a 5-star rating system and readily available at cleanlabelproject.org.
