WASHINGTON — Party Animal is recalling two lots of its Cocolicious dog food because it might contain pentobarbital.

Samples of the company’s 13-ounce can of Cocolicious Beef and Turkey dog food, and Cocolicious Chicken and Beef dog food tested positive for pentobarbital, according the Party Animal.

“The safety of pets is and always will be our first priority. We sincerely regret the reports of the discomfort experienced by the pet who consumed this food. As pet parents ourselves, we take this matter seriously,” the company said in a statement.

The company is working with retailers across the country to make sure all of the recalled products are taken off the shelves.
