The Dog Food Project website has a list of the most recent recalls on their main page. They also have a page called Product List where you can search for your brand of dog food, read the list of ingredients, as well as the Nutrition Information.
It is a great site for comparing various brands of dog food if you are on the search for a different type of food.

Dog Food Advisor is another great resource of information about dog foods.
They have a page dedicated to the most recent recalls.
Dog Food Advisor also has a list of dog foods you can search through. Brands are listed alphabetically or based on a 1-5 star rating.
Not only are all ingredients listed but each ingredient is followed by a short explanation of that particular item.
For example, Acana brand has peas listed as an ingredient.
The website further explains "The fifth ingredient mentions peas. Peas are a quality source of carbohydrates. Plus (like all legumes) they’re rich in natural fiber."

There is an increasing number of recalls that are effecting the health and lives of millions of animals.
Therefore, it is up to us as pet owners to not only read the ingredients of what we are feeding, but to also question where those ingredients come from.
