Quite some time ago I bought a large can of this food and found all white specks in it quite big, (almost looked like flour  when you add water to it)  The date on it was expired too.  I took it back and sent a letter to Evo (Natura)  I just bought another can this time the smaller can and it has white stuff in it too, does anyone else feed this food? is  this normal? it looks like something is not getting mixed in properly.

I feed a lot of Evo and also Evo 95% but my guys just didn't like the beef one.

But it's my experience to find those white specks in the Wellness beef -- I wonder why that is?

Were those white flecks maybe the fat from the beef?

That's what I've been assuming.  Sometimes I find them in the Wellness chicken, too.

There have been a lot of different brands lately with the white flecks or blobs. If you rub it between your fingers see if it feels greasy or gritty.

If I rub it between my fingers it is kinda gritty but it kinda smears into a powder. Huh

Sounds like vitamins or bone meal then. Can you mix it in better yourself ?

TBOB, it sounds to me like this is fat again.

I notice with the Evo 95 Beef that some batches are way more fatty than others.  I too have found the white specks and they seem to me to be fat.  They will not disolve in water and they also sink, and IMO, since fat is heavier than water it does not mix well.  The canned foods do add water to make it sufficient for processing and I think the white specks, if the beef is very fatty, will not disolve during the canning process.  I also saw this a lot with the NV Instinct canned food as well.

Not sure if anyone here makes gravy, but if you were to take flour and mix with water, the lumpy parts that dont mix, if you were to take that and put it inbetween your fingers and smear it, its like that. Huh

If you've ever made beef stew, pureed it and refrigerated it, you'd see those fat specks too, if you didn't trim the meat. I've done this in the past and it looks just like the canned meat. Beef preparations are also a lot more dense than the poultry ones. My cats aren't crazy about it (or venison or lamb).
