It contains 25 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 5 anti-nutrients including Peas, Pea Fiber, and Pea Protein (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 5 other sketchy ingredients, including Dried Tomato Pomace and Powdered Cellulose.

Warning Due to this being a grain-free food that contains legumes or potatoes this American Journey recipe may be implicated in the FDA's ongoing investigation into diet-related Dilated Cardiomyopathy (or DCM), a potentially fatal heart condition.
