Iodine contents in dog food, experts chime in pls

Iodine is important for the thyroid functions, too much or too little can have big effects.

The AAFCO guideline for Iodine is 1.5mg/kg.

Now if you look at labels of some of the high quality foods the numbers seem to be all over the place.
One Acana formula states 2.1 mg/kg
Orijen is an incredibly low 0.18 mg/kg
Honest Kitchen Force, As Served (hydrated) 0.75

So what's the deal? I'm a little confused here..
