Newman's Own Adult Formula 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 20 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 2 anti-nutrients including Organic Peas and Organic Soybean Meal (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 1 other sketchy ingredient, Natural Flavors.

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