    @ Susan,
    Thanks for the reassuring help and advice.
    The PetCo. employees simply said that C&P were repackaging the product.
    Which appeared to be true at the time because they did have slightly different packaging on the shelf as oppose to the product in the clearance section. Ingredients appeared to be the same, with an expiration date that was up in a couple months. So I factored that in to why they probably wanted it out of the store ASAP.
    I sat there deliberating for about half an hour or so, over it and asked multiple employees what their thoughts were on the item.
    In the end, I just couldn’t pass up on it because freeze dried is always a premium priced item, and I’m already familiar with the brand, having fed my dogs their treats, so I just felt like it was a safe, healthy and well priced option.
    I’m just glad I didn’t start feeding that exclusively.
    I’ll continue to lightly top it or mingle it into the regular food.
    Thanks again for your help and suggestions.

    Well crap. So this is why all those bags of Castor and Pollux Organic freeze dried Grain free Pristine Free-range Chicken dog food were slashed in half at PetCo. and on their clearance shelves.
    I bought like 5 bags. Dang it!
    I haven’t been feeding that exclusively to my dogs, but I’ve been using a small amount of it as a topper on top of their Wellness Complete + homemade quinoa mix. Sometimes I like to use a piece or two of the freeze dried kibble as a treat, because the freeze dried kibble quickly absorbs CBD oil and MCT oils and helps to deliver those kinds of supplements without any getting lost.
    Should I exercise extreme caution and cut out the Castor and Pollux of their diet completely or is it still okay in moderation?

    Thanks for sharing that article.
    For the past few years, I’ve been steadily working on improving the quality of my dog’s food and did modify his grain intake, but haven’t completely removed it.
