It contains 23 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 5 anti-nutrients including Potatoes, Lentils, and Peas (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 2 other sketchy ingredients, including Dried Plain Beet Pulp and Brewers Dried Yeast.

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