    I feed the high energy which I believe is the maroon bag. Have had good results the last couple yrs. I feed the extreme athlete during hunting season to keep weight on. I have recently been thinking about switching to pro plan, but if it isn't broke?

    Too many recalls for my liking. Mine was on it, until I read on here about all the problems when I first got my pup. I've steered clear since.

    Too many recalls for me. I fed dimond for a long long time. About 14-15 years ago was the first recall I remember and it affected alot if brands- and for awhile dimond had inspection slips- INSIDE bags of food. They did a lot to restore fairh at the time, and I honestly thought they would be my goto even afterwards. They got hit harder than royal canin iams euk etc and had to fight to keep market share- an sit seemed like quality control became absolutely paramount to them. Appearances can be deceiving however, and they have been plagued with issues these last 5-7 years and I steer clear.



    *plagued with issues means a few recalls in a decade or so, not like every other pallet of chow is killing off dogs

    By their OWN admission, Diamond had not implemented the new quality control measures when the last recall occurred. They have a history of failure in this area and I see no reason whatsoever to trust them now. Yes, before someone starts up, I know all the others have had recalls too. But the ones I am familiar with at Euk, were for preventive reasons. No dogs were actually sickened, but they had reason to believe product had been contaminated and pulled it. Diamond has not done that, and the illnesses caused have not been limited to dogs, but also affected the humans that own the dogs.

    Would not trust them to make a safe food... Last recall even harmed people and children.

    The west cost plant. has never had a problem. I have been feeding taste of the wild and natural chicken for years and have had no problems. This subject has been beat to death, but I had to bring some balance to the table.
