Rachael Ray Nutrish Natural Beef 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 19 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 4 anti-nutrients including Dried Peas, Soybean Meal, and Pea Starch (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 5 other sketchy ingredients, including Natural Flavor and Beet Powder (Color).

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