Several of the foods on you're list are made in the Diamond plants and have been part of several recalls over the last few yrs. I won't feed my boys anything that is mass produced. If you want a good food, you need to find one that has their own dedicated plant, such as Orijen and Acana. NV, Canidae, Taste of the Wild and several other "top" brands are made in the same plants as the recalled foods, and some are actually part of the recall itself.

What foods are being recalled?

The following brands are involved in the recall:

* Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul
* Country Value
* Diamond
* Diamond Naturals
* Premium Edge
* Professional
* 4Health
* Taste of the Wild
* Kirkland Foods (see below)

The Canidae products “potentially” affected are:

Canidae Dog, All Life Stages
Canidae Dog, Chicken Meal & Rice
Canidae Dog, Lamb Meal & Rice
Canidae Dog, Platinum


Just because a food is marketed as Holistic a/o grain-free doesn't make it a good product. Just do your research and you're sure to find something a bit safer, if you need to feed kibble. This is an excellent food and has never been a part of any recall. In fact, it's the only pet food to ever receive FDA approval as fit for humans, and it's made in a human food facility:
