    Boooo! I don't like/trust Merrick at all, and they are now buying Castor & Pollux (who I thought was a decent food).

    Ah well, another one bites the dust (IMO).

    Announced today (April 16, 2012), "Merrick Pet Care, Inc. today signed an agreement to acquire Castor & Pollux Natural PetWorks, a privately held natural and organic pet food business based in Clackamas, Ore. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed."

    I don't feed Merrick, but what's wrong with it? According to the label, the dry recipes seems to be fairly decent.

    Oh no good at all. I don't remember any recalls lately with their food, but their treats get recalled pretty frequently. We've started to cut them out where I work, as far as their treats go.
