Purina Beneful Healthy Weight with Real 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 22 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 3 anti-nutrients including Soybean Hulls*, Soybean Meal, and Dried Green Beans (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 7 other sketchy ingredients, including Egg and Chicken Flavor and Poultry and Pork Digest.

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.
