|Ow. The caps lock. It always hurts my eyes.
But, anyway, finding worms in dog food is actually a common thing. It isn't bad for the dog, but it sure as heck is disgusting for us when we have to handle the food to feed them, right? This usually happens during shipping or if the store let the food sit out too long. Back when I fed commercial brands, I bought a bag of Iams cat food and found a BUNCH of worms and (what I think were) grain mites in the bag. I looked at the date and it was a month past shelf life. While I knew it wasn't bad for the cats, I tossed the food anyway because I was not going to handle it. So, I doubt it was Wellness' fault. It could've happened when they shipped the bag to the store or the store could've let the bag sit out too long. There's usually a date on dog food and cat food bags; that's the recommended shelflife; I'd recommend you check it before tossing the bag and if it's even two weeks past the shelf life, complain to the store. Not the company. If it's not, I'd assume it happened during shipping.
But, I'd recommend you stay on Kirklands. I tried the Rachal Ray food. It's overpriced junk and my dogs HATED it.
