I have been feeding the sweet potato variety of this food. Itchmo just posted that the rice gluten has the same chemical as was found in the wheat gluten. The rice gluten came from an American company. If you want to get fast and accurate updates on pet food recalls go to www.itchmo.com and sign up for their e-mail alert list. According to the woman I talked to at Natural Balance the rice gluten is a new addition to the product and is only in the bags that have been on the shelves for the last week.
