With all the recalls I have started searching for another brand of dry food to fit the needs of my dogs.
Does anyone have information, good or bad, about these brands?

Blue Life Protection Formula
Pinnacle Holistic

I am interested in where the ingredients are sourced from if anyone knows that. I can always call the companies.
How about past history like recalls and such.
Anything else?

We've had luck with Blue Buffalo, Max eats the fish and sweet potato.
As far as recalls, I don't know of any, but I have no idea where thier ingrediants are sourced either, sorry.

Blue had a Vitamin D excess recall, that's all I can remember off the top of my head.

I'm not really a a fan of Blue, their quality control seems to have gone down since they've expanded. I also dont care for merrick, they've had some issues in the past, especially with salmonella contamination of their treats.

I've heard pretty good things about fromm, small company, no recalls. Pinnacle is also a decent company.

We are switching over to Fromm now. It is highly recommended by the people at The Paw Depot where I buy my dogs' food.

All of my dogs love Fromm. It is a great company- small, no recalls, high quality.
