American Journey Large Breed Chicken & Brown Rice Protein First Recipe Dry Dog Food is hot extruded (which means it's processed under extreme heat and pressure) and made with feed grade ingredients, which are unfit for human consumption. It contains 24 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 4 anti-nutrients including Peas, Pea Protein, and Suncured Alfalfa Meal (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 4 other sketchy ingredients, including Natural Flavor and Dried Beet Pulp.

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.
