I just wrote them and ordered some samples (I still have a fantasy that I can find one food I can feed both Jasper and Cash) They also told me that although made in the USA some foods are sourced outside the states...
Most of the ingredients in our formulas originate in the United
States. There are critical ingredients that are not available
domestically in an adequate supply and with as much quality as our
international supply. We do purchase some ingredients from foreign
suppliers such as lamb meal from New Zealand, potato protein from
Germany and dried chicory root from Belgium. We screen for all toxins
with a test called ToxiScreen. This test screens for other toxins
besides melamine and cyanuric acid but heavy metals, pesticide residue,
aflatoxin, vomitoxin, rodenticide, and many others. Should any of these
contaminants be present in the sample, the ToxiScreen test will detect

Diamond Pet Foods
I have two concerns with the food that maybe you users could dispel... One is that it is made by Diamond Pet Foods-- One of the main companies involved in the recalls.. not saying this food is dangerous-- but does that concern you? or do you feel having gone through it they may be one of the safest now?
the other concern and I could not find any info on this...their wetlands and their salmon formulas both have smoked meats in it (this is why I think my guys may both like it) but should we be concerned with carcinogens? like we would if we ate smoked meat day after day?
I like that the food has less protein than the other grain frees and more fiber
4% compared to usually 2%...
Daniel, you are very good at this food thing...What do you think?
