I would feel better about this food if I knew where the "imported ingredients" come from. Chinese ingredients, especially "protein" have killed a lot of dogs and cats. Chinese "protein" can be a lot of things and some of them are poison.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/200...od_recalls


The 2007 pet food recalls comprise the contamination and wide recall [wikipedia.org] of many brands of cat [wikipedia.org] and dog foods [wikipedia.org] beginning in March 2007, and the ensuing developments involving the human food supply. The recalls in North America, Europe, and South Africa came in response to reports of renal failure [wikipedia.org] in pets. Initially, the recalls were associated with the consumption of mostly wet pet foods made with wheat gluten [wikipedia.org] from a single Chinese [wikipedia.org] company. After more than three weeks of complaints from consumers, the recall began voluntarily with the Canadian [wikipedia.org] company Menu Foods [wikipedia.org] on 16 March 2007, when a company test showed sickness and death in some of the test animals. Soon after, there were numerous media reports of animal deaths as a result of kidney failure. In the following weeks, several other companies who received the contaminated wheat gluten also voluntarily recalled dozens of pet food brands. One month after the initial recall, contaminated rice protein from a different source in China was also identified as being associated with kidney failure in pets in the United States, while contaminated corn gluten was associated with kidney failure with pets in South Africa. As a result of investigating the 2007 pet food recalls, a broader Chinese protein export contamination [wikipedia.org] investigation unfolded, raising concerns about the safety of the human food supply.
By the end of March, veterinary [wikipedia.org] organizations reported more than 100 pet deaths among nearly 500 cases of kidney failure,[1] [wikipedia.org] with one online database self-reporting as many as 3,600 deaths as of 11 April.[2] [wikipedia.org][3] [wikipedia.org] The U.S. Food and Drug Administration [wikipedia.org] has received reports of several thousand cats and dogs who have died after eating contaminated food, but have only confirmed 14 cases, in part because there is no centralized government database of animal sickness or death in the United States, as there are with humans (such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [wikipedia.org]).[4] [wikipedia.org][5] [wikipedia.org] As a result, many sources speculate the actual number of affected pets may never be known, and experts are concerned that the actual death toll could potentially reach into the thousands.[6] [wikipedia.org][7] [wikipedia.org]
Overall, several major companies have recalled more than 5300 pet food products, with most of the recalls coming from Menu Foods.[4] [wikipedia.org] The contamination was caused by melamine [wikipedia.org] in the affected foods. The Chinese company behind the contaminated wheat gluten has initially denied any involvement in the contamination, but is cooperating with Chinese and American investigators.
