Default Merrick Pet Food Purchases Castor & Pollux

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).

http://www.truthaboutpetfood.com/art...r--pollux.html

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.

I don't trust the company... many quality control issues. I've learned, in more recent times, not to really entirely trust or only look at ingredient labels. To me, a trustworthy company is more important.

Here's a few, but there has been more:

Thanks for that. I know I don't keep up on this stuff like I should.

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.
