Although the FDA is investigating grain-free foods, it’s important to know there is no scientific evidence that has connected DCM to any type of food, including grain-free foods. While the FDA is actively investigating a potential correlation between grain-free diets and a rise in cases of DCM, the concern appears focused on diets that utilize large amounts of potatoes, legumes and peas.
