Merrick Backcountry Hero's Banquet Stew Grain-Free Canned 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 20 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 4 anti-nutrients including Green Beans, Dried Peas, and Potato Starch (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 4 other sketchy ingredients, including Caramel Color and Xanthan Gum. Many consider this food to be inconvenient, because it requires clean-up.
