Orijen Tundra Grain-Free Freeze-Dried Dog Food is a Freeze-Dried dog food made with feed grade ingredients, which are unfit for human consumption. It contains 3 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 1 anti-nutrient, Pea Fiber (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), but has no other questionable ingredients. Many consider this food to be inconvenient, because it requires preparation, special handling, and careful clean-up.

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.
