    • I agree with Ryker because I am very particular about the dog food I provide my dogs. I have used this dog food for a long time and although it is not cheap, I am willing to accept the extra expense in order to get the peace of mind that my dogs are getting a safe, balanced diet. There is a very remote chance it will ever be involved in a recall. However, in this climate of lost jobs and foreclosures many people are having to relinquish their beloved pets to shelters. So, if some people have chosen to feed low quality dog food in order to save money they don’t have, just to keep their pets, I completely support their efforts. It breaks my heart to think pets are ending up abandoned so, if I was in their shoes, I would feed what ever I could afford just to keep my dogs. It is tough times but even if you have to switch to lower quality food you should not have to worry about the cheaper food poisoning your dogs. This is a case of poor quality control on the part of the manufacturers. Shame on them!

      • I buy pet food based on the ingrediants. Store brand dog food is made by name brand marketers and is bought in bulk and sold in different bags at cheaper prices. If you remember Iams recently had a recall so I don’t think it has to do with the price of the food you buy a lot of the store brands are of equal quality of name brands. We have over 7 dogs now that were displaced do to the owners not being able to take care of them. We are on a tight budget due to both my husband and myself having surgeries so the cheaper food is all we can afford right now but we do read labels! What about Iams killing all those pets! We unfortunately lost our American Bulldog due to the pet food even after taking him to the vet. And are heartbroken but you should be ashamed to but blame on someone who buys cheaper priced foods. I;m sure you are one of those who just buys for the name and never reads a label
