    HERE WE GO AGAIN !!!!!!another pet food recall.WHY? is it china again?wasn’t once enough?STOP making food from china.OUR PETS are DYING.this SUCKS!!!!Make pet food in the usa.GET OUT OF CHINA!!

  2. After the last recall for dog food I changed my furbaby to Halo brand food and treats. Halo has it’s own manufacturing plant which is extremely important. I don’t worry now and also I receive notifications from Dogington Post which I recommend belonging to.
