Tests of Valley Proteins’ animal fat products found presence of pentobarbital

In the FDA’s warning letter to Valley Proteins Inc., based in Winchester, Virginia, it said, “the presence of pentobarbital in your animal fat products causes these products to be adulterated because the animal food contains an unsafe new animal drug. The drug is unsafe because it was not used in conformance with the drug approval, which does not have a tolerance established for the presence of pentobarbital in the edible tissues of animals.”
