American Journey Large Breed Salmon & Sweet Potato Recipe Grain-Free 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 23 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 3 anti-nutrients including Peas, Chickpeas, and Sweet Potatoes (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 3 other sketchy ingredients, including Canola Oil (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherols) and Natural Flavor.

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.
