*Not about the recall

I was looking at their ingredients, and it looked like a pretty decent food

They sell it at Acme though. I thought no good foods ended up at supermarkets?

Just curious. I work at acme and I pass by it all the time but never thought to look at it because I always hear that supermarket pet food sucks.

Their impression of power is remarkable. They give one the feeling of immense reserves of energy, of great reservoirs of knowledge, of tolerance of disposition, obstinacy of purpose, and tenacity of principle. They are responsive, and they have a lot of quiet, good sense.

It doesn't seem to be very palatable, we got a bunch donated to the shelter through a food distributor, cat and dog food, most of the animals wouldn't touch it. I don't know why, maybe they were just picky, but it was odd. Ended up throwing a bunch of it away. That was a couple years ago, I don't know if they've changed their formulas since.

That's too bad, SableCollie.

It looks ok, but be careful as some of it has been recalled.

Eww. My work sells the big bags of vegetarian dog food, and some of the cans. I just got home from work. Turns out they were selling the recalled food and its off the shelves now, but yeah. Basically 75% of the pet food Acme sells was recalled. Sucks too because like right before all the recalls people were buying the food and I'm a bagger up front and I put it in their cars >_< makes me feel bad.
