I'm not Diamond Pet Food's biggest fan. The quality of their raw ingredients and processing is no different than companies like Purina, Pedigree, etc. I do appreciate the fact that Diamond chooses (for the most part, except for their crappiest foods) not to use corn, wheat, soy, mystery meat, and unidentifiable by-products. I would definitely recommend Nutragold over a grocery store brand, but if you can afford better, buy better. If you're in New Zealand, see if you can get a hold of Ziwi Peak. It's a New Zealand brand of dehydrated raw food. You could at least supplement the Nutragold with Ziwi Peak. ETA: Sorry, the websites you were posting had Australian and New Zealand addresses, so I just assumed that's where you were. In that case, I would switch between the NaturaGold and the Nature's Gift and supplement with homemade food. From my other answer: You can also make your own dog food. Here's one from Dr. Michael Fox: http://www.twobitdog.com/DrFox/specialre… Or you can just Google 'dog food recipes'. If you want you can also look at the ingredients in raw foods and supplement your dog's kibble with those. I like Primal ( http://www.primalpetfoods.com/ ) and Bravo ( http://www.bravorawdiet.com/bravoproduct… ) and Nature's Logic ( http://www.natureslogic.com/ ) or Stella and Chewy's ( http://www.stellaandchewys.com/ )

First in 2006, then 2009, now in 2012. Seems they have a bit of an issue at the 3 year mark no? Maybe feeling that they're out of trouble and begin to lax on the sanitation procedures at that point? With the most current one: Salmonella is easily killed at about 160 degrees Farenheit. And as far as I'm aware, commercial kibbles are made at around 450 degrees. So clearly there is an issue with either cross contamination with the before and after product, or there's fecal matter going into the foods. Either way poor production management that could likely easily be avoided. Have they tried getting new staff/management? Probably not, as people keep buying their product regardless of how many dogs seem to die as a result. It's a shame, the Kirkland brand was my potential switch to once the Costco was opened here. Guess I'll stick with my Pro Plan. Add: TK the final link is on the most current recall

For the price it sucks because of these ingredients: potassium chloride, sodium chloride, choline chloride You do not need sodium chloride to dehydrate a product. Would you knowingly ingest chlorinated pool water with kool aide as a summer drink? If you're going to spend soo much money on food might as well go on a raw diet. Give your dog real salmon and real raw poultry. Mix it with peas and carrots topped with flax seed oil for a shiny coat. Take the powerful ingredients and make it to your own. You'll save at least $15. That dog food is soo expensive..... it doesn't make sense.

Patsy Originally Answered: Should persons on Food Stamps be Requried to eat healthier foods and restricted on junk foods and sodas?
Well, the fact that medicaid pays the medical and dental bills for a lot of people on food stamps, it makes sense to restrict foods purchased with food stamps. People whose life choices leave them at risk for requiring government assistance to provide basic necessities on a long term basis really don't have room to complain. If you need free food and then need free dental care and free health care, just be thankful and accept the restrictions. But, that is of course too much to ask for. Of course anyone thinking of restricting food stamp purchases is heartless and cruel. How dare anyone say junk food is not allowed! Then, add in the food lobbyists and there is no way this would ever pass. Because, money talks and common sense has no place in the conversation when someone is trying to make money. Imagine any politician trying to get this passed and the amount of money on attack ads that would be spent by junk food companies to stop it. Somehow Doritos and Coke would become a part of the food pyramid.
