Gravy Train Dog Food

Important recall information appears below.

Gravy Train dog food is owned by Big Heart Pet Brands, a branch of the Del Monte Pet Products group. It was the first to advertise that mixing its dog food with water created a gravy that dogs couldn’t get enough of.

Big Heart proudly proclaims its belief in integrity, courage and action to make the best choices for pets. Although the tagline on the bag says, “Stir Up a Nourishing Meal,” Gravy Train is generally considered to be a very low-quality pet food.

Although Big Heart Pet Brands was recently acquired by the J.M. Smucker Company, the contact information for the brand remains the same for now, as of late 2015.
