    I will have to upload pics from my phone in a minute, but when I was transferring my pellets into my plastic storage container I saw a few flecks of color. I stopped pouring and saw, to my horror, plastic in the food! Some bits are even separate and really sharp! I am contacting the company asap. I bought them at rural king last week. They already ate one bag and I am so nervous that they ingested this stuff!!

    If you haven't noticed it in the other bag it shouldn't have harmed them. I hope the company has a good excuse for this. Hope you get this resolved!

    I found out that it is pretty much impossible to get ahold of anyone that actually manufacturers this food. Everything led me back to Rural King so I brought it back. They accepted it with no problem and said it wasn't uncommon. Eek!
