Tom, based on something else you said a couple of months ago, I started looking for Fromm. Two weeks ago, I finally found two distributors in Northern California (that's all!!) that Fromm says carry it. We drove down to one since it was only 35 minutes away and they do not carry it. They said they've gotten that a lot, but they will order it if we ask. So, we made our quest down to the other store, which was about an hour away, and did find some. I grabbed a bag of the salmon, and I picked up one can of the duck because it intrigued me.

I've been slowly incorporating the dry food into the dry for my girls that aren't nursing. They aren't too thrilled with it, but I expected that. This morning, I opened the canned duck and was really surprised at the contents. It looks like a really good stew - human variety. Every item in there was easily identifiable. And needless to say, just a small portion of that in the kibble and the girls gobbled it up like they hadn't eaten in a week. It was crazy.

At any rate, I'm really impressed with the ingredient list, and what I saw in the canned foods. I don't add canned often, but it was a nice confirmation of what that link you posted says about Fromm Foods:
Fromm Family Foods (verified via website 3/25/07)

Canned foods are NOT made by Menu Foods.
Canned foods made in China.
Foods produced in a human food plant without wheat gluten or other grains.
Canned food made with 100% pure meat, duck, chicken & fish, NOT reformed meat.
No by-products used in their dog and cat foods.
Fromm Family Foods does not test on animals.
Products are all-natural. Products made with binders to make reformed meat and products which use wheat gluten are NOT considered all-natural by their standards.
(emphasis mine)
Thank you for the recommendation. I'm really pleased with this company and am going to order more - from the closer store.

I looked for it as well and found that the only carriers in my state we at least an hour away. I asked at a local store as they carry some of the other more natural foods and they had heard of it but haven't ordered it. Too bad the don't have a web store on their site.

I tried Fromm's and Wellness (luckily I found samples) and they didn't like either of them. Then I tried Blue Buffalo, and they seem to like it. If I don't give them their Little Cesar first thing in the A.M., they will eat the dry, which I would prefer. I was giving them Royal Canin, but the Blue Buffalo is a better product. Right now I am still mixing the two, with a little more BB than RC. They will even nibble on it during the day.

I think the good list is shorter than the bad list.

Purina is still going STRONG!

My guys just did not like Fromm, and even the canned chicken, which I thought looked like stew also, was a no go here.

They are too used to Filet Mignon.

Hi havanese friends, I just discovered this forum, cool! I feed Canidae, have been for several years, my dogs also get raw bones, slow cooked chicken, organ meats, whatever I find on sale, sometimes raw, sometimes cooked, depends on what it is. I don't like to eat the same old thing all the time, I'm sure my dogs don't either! Fromm is great because you can switch around among thier different formulas so the dogs don't get bored.
I have compiled a list of sites and articles about the food recall on my website Pretty scary stuff!

My guys eat mostly Evo, Innvoa and some Great Life (which is really expensive). I add a little human food to the mix, mostly chicken, beef or whatever is leftover. They love it (Romeo and Brandy, Bugsy is indifferent).
