Numerous dog food brands in the U.S. are being recalled after an investigation found traces in them of a drug normally used to euthanise animals.
Walmart has removed the brands from all 4,700 stores in the nation.
One expert that spoke to WJLA questioned where the drug would have come from if the company was not using euthanised animals in its food. Subsequent tests revealed the presence of the drug pentobarbital, a common euthanasia drug, in the animal's system.
The action comes after WJLA-TV Washington, in conjunction with food testing firm Ellipse Analytics, analyzed dog food brands.

The Falcon has a captain's quarters, too, as well as hidden compartments which always come in handy when you need to hide. And we have two words for Lando's action figure: That.
Reports in the United States have claimed at least 31 different varieties of dog food have been recalled after a drug used to put pets to sleep, pentobarbital, was found present during lab analyses.
Collaborating with an independent lab, the news station tested 15 cans of Gravy Train pet food and found 60 percent of them contained the euthanasia drug.
It added that the other three brands are also being withdrawn. That trust appears to have been misplaced.
Thixton says based on current labeling standards, it's impossible for consumers to know what they're really feeding their pets. The amount of the drug found in the tested food would not necessarily be enough to cause harm to an animal, but its mere presence is more than enough to warrant a full investigation.
Results of the months-long investigation were released earlier this week.
