|I find BB to be extremely overrated. It's certainly not a bad food, but you can do a lot better. On top of that, I'm wary of any pet food company that puts the amount of money into advertising that BB has, and accepts deals with big box stores. I see them as being on a very similar path as Nutro, or Natura. The store I currently work in is in the process of phasing BB out, and I know several other very conscious independent retailers who won't touch the stuff.
As part of phasing it out, the store owner decided to use up some remaining stock on her dog. This caused a near constant stream of suffocating Bulldog gas and persistent loose stools, as well as eye gunk.
Fox also did absolutely terrible on BB. Low appetite, weight gain, dry coat, shedding constantly, inflamed eyes, yellow eye gunk, and chronic ear infections. She was only on it for convenience, so all we had to do was take the trouble to keep her entirely on raw. All the problems resolved quickly as soon as she was off BB.
I don't believe the stuff is outright toxic, or contaminated in any way. But it's not a food I recommend.
