Blue Buffalo has had one dog food recall, in October, 2010, for Vitamin D excess.

Blue Buffalo recognizes that dogs are carnivores, so they provide "biologically appropriate" mixtures of whole meats, meat meals,and a variety of fruits and vegetables. Blue Buffalo has three product lines:

  • BLUE Basics - Made with carefully chosen natural ingredients for dogs with food sensitivities, BLUE Basics is available in dry and canned recipes, plus biscuits.
  • BLUE Freedom - BLUE Freedom is free from the grains that contain gluten. And like all BLUE foods, BLUE Freedom is made with the finest natural ingredients, with real meat first and their exclusive LifeSource® Bits.
  • BLUE Wilderness - A protein-rich formula inspired by the diet of wolves, BLUE Wilderness and new Rocky Mountain Recipe will provide your dog with a higher concentration of the meat that he loves.

Since a lot of fish meal is contained in Blue Buffalo products, ethoxyquin may be a concern to some of the customers, since ethoxyquin can cause damage to your dogs liver. However, Blue Buffalo denies that any of their products contain ethoxyquin. From their website after "What's Not in BLUE and Why":

Preservatives like BHA, BHT, ethoxyquin, propylene glycol provide no nutritional value and have been associated with possible side effects.
