Orijen Regional Red 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 9 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 7 anti-nutrients including Red Lentils, Chickpeas, and Green Peas (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), but has no other questionable ingredients.

Warning In June 2019, the FDA implicated Orijen's dog food in at least 10 cases of Dilated Cardiomyopathy (or DCM), a potentially fatal heart condition.
