2. Gravy Train® Beefy Classics Dry Dog Food
Gravy Train is manufactured and owned by Big Heart Pet Brands, a division of J.M. Smuckers. Just like Ol’Roy, Gravy Train’s wet dog food product line was voluntarily recalled for containing the euthanasia drug Pentobarbital as well.
If that’s not bad enough, Gravy Train is still being sold and unfortunately still not providing transparency to what meat sources they’re using in their kibble and wet dog food formulas. Corn is the #1 ingredient in Gravy Train Beefy Classics. When you think of Beefy Classics you think of well beef not corn. When looking at the ingredient list, real beef is nowhere to be found. The only meat sources are meat and bone meal which clearly doesn’t specify what type of meat it really is.
Additionally, Gravy Train Beefy Classics includes artificial colors, artificial beef flavor, red 40, animal digest and BHA (preservative). The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment of the state of California lists BHA under “Chemicals Known to the State to Cause Cancer or Reproductive Toxicity”
