Orijen and Acana dog food

This is the reason I home cook for our dogs...I know  exactly what goes into their bowls every day.  Produce and meat that we eat ourselves. Even the brands from Champion pet foods (Acana & Orejin) which were thought to be one of the top line of dog food one could buy is in trouble. https://www.vmdtoday.com/news/class-action-lawsuit-filed-against-pet-food-manufacturer

What is troubling is what are the long term effects of these contaminants being fed over the years.

Anyone can file a lawsuit.   I'll wait for the facts to come out.   I have heard good and bad about these products, we tried Orijen once, the dogs just didn't care for it.

Also:

Nestlé SA is in talks to acquire a majority stake in Canada's Champion Petfoods for more than $2 billion, according to people familiar with the matter, as the consumer-food giant boosts investment in higher growth businesses to help offset    https://www.marketwatch.com/story/nestle-in-talks-to-buy-petfood-maker-for-2b-2018-07-02
Nestle owns Purina.    Is this a good thing?    Well, at least Purina employs veterinary nutritionists and does feeding trials.   I have read that it is best to go with a large company that has been around a long time.
Not that small companies can't produce a good product..... Best to do a little homework and talk to your vet if you have any questions.
