for grain free? I like Orijen, Acana, EVO or CORE better. I like Orijen best, but thats a personal decision based on my opinion of the company and the quality of the ingredients (ethoxyquin free fish, hormone and antibiotic free meats, free range everything, pesticide free veggies, local sourcing etc etc)
Taste of the Wild is still a great food. And its economical. Diamond as a company did have issues with recalls, although Taste of the Wild was NOT affected. And from my reading, Diamond itself was not at fault, they simply bought product that had been deceptively adulterated by the supplier. Before that they had an issue with aflatoxin which is a toxic fungus found on corn. Neither of those recalls affected TOTW though as the ingredients are not used in TOTW (one was related to corn, the other to wheat gluten) Diamond now also tests all of its food onsite. Personally, I still feel comfortable recommending TOTW as a high quality diet. Can you buy better, yes, there are a handful of foods I think are better. But its better than the vast majority.
