Pedigree Adult Complete Nutrition Grilled Steak & Vegetable Flavor 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 Soybean Meal and Dried Peas (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 11 other sketchy ingredients, including Yellow 6 and Red 40.

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