|Yes, Iams was part of the recall and now many dry foods will be recalled from many sources.
The only safe processed food is one with out grains. Dogs are not designed to eat grains in the first place and almost all grains have have been GMed and or sprayed with pesticides and fertilizer (which is one theroy for the contamination on this particular re-call). Grains contain mites and mycotoxins as well. I could go on and on about how grains are not fit food for our "Fidos". Le me know if you want to read articles about it...
I have only found one dry dog food that does not conatin grains OR potatoes .
The latest trend in pet foods is the addition of potatoes. Potatoes contain a carcinogen- *acrylamide- As a daily maintenance food, potatoes are not a health food! They may actually be a part of the cancer epidemic in pets! The August 14, 2002 issue of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, reported presence of high levels of acrylamide in carbohydrate rich foods like potatoes.
*Acrylamide induces gene mutations and has been found in animal tests to cause malignant stomach tumors. It is also known to cause damage to the central and peripheral nervous system.
The food is called Rubicon. You can read more about it here:
I personally believe that if you can not cook for your dog or give it fresh raw meat and bone then this kibble is the BEST one I have found so far.
Have A Pawsitively Grrrreat Day!
