...just add meat and water.

Could the affected wheat be in their original product? I don't mean to be creepy but it does worry me.

Read what they say it sounds good to me I think its an easy alternative to trying to make pet food from scratch.If you read the testimonials and the media links it might ease your mind.As for me Im going to go ahead and get some it can be pricey for me having 3 dogs but I may try it as a supplement type thing to go with their other dog food.Then I will see if I cant make my own using the food dehydrator and see what I can come up with to give the dogs a boost of nutrition.

Like Half Baked's concerns, I feel that these companies may be the ones who fall between the cracks of the recall. I am going to continue using the dry dog food. I walked down the pet supply isle at the grocery store and the recalled products are not there. Smaller businesses like pet grooming services do not have a great market for selling their products on a daily basis. I can always get whatever extra pet supplies from the vet. I have a kitty on the special urinary tract diet. My vet carries a full line of dog & cat foods. You just go to the counter and buy it.

As for supplementing the dry dog food, for years people have just been pouring the fat off their meats like ground beef, bacon...etc and pouring over the dry food. I am sure there are some pets who will not welcome the dry dog food.

Good luck to you.

There are SO many companies like that one - especially now. They're jumping out of the woodwork.

I'll continue feeding what I've been feeding & keep abreast of the news.
