Purina Beneful Grain Free with Real Farm-Raised Chicken 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 23 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 4 anti-nutrients including Pea Starch, Soybean Germ Meal, and Soybean Meal (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 4 other sketchy ingredients, including Poultry And Pork Digest and Garlic Oil C-4096.

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