Default Any Re-calls on Kirkland Active?

Every time we get Lucy back on Kirkland Active Dog kibble. She starts throwing up and having Diarrhea. She was velcro doggy all yesterday and into the evening. My husband finally got fed up and put her bed and Lucy in the garage.
She threw up twice and had the runs once. She also had the runs through her entire walk.
I think her stomach was upset all day but it wasn't until 7 hours later all this happened.
I think it is the Kirkland itself. She keeps dog biscuits and boiled eggs down.

No active recalls. If it only happens with the Kirkland Active, then there is probably an insensitivity combined with her already-present nausea from her vestibular problems. I'd switch her off the Active to something she can tolerate.

Poor Lucy! I'd have to agree with vagreys. It sounds like she can no longer tolerate the Kirkland Active.

We will start looking for a different dog food. I am glad to hear there are no active recalls. We just opened a new bag.
Any comment on Pedigree canned chicken?

Techie, I use Nature's Variety kibble and canned. The pet store I go to always has samples. I used to feed the Nature's Variety raw, but I can't afford that at this moment. I really think raw is best if you can go that route. Of course switching her diet all together may cause more diarrhea. As far as Pedigree, my dogs love it. Sometimes I use that if the pet store is out of the Nature's Variety chicken.

Which one? Pedigree has a number of canned foods with chicken.

Choice cuts with gravy. Only the one we are going to open tonight is with beef. The other cans were chicken I know. We'll be looking into other kibbles though.

My dog is on The Honest Kitchen Keen (All Natural Dog Food | Dehydrated Raw Dog Food | Like Homemade Pet Food) due to his allergies and lack of interest in food. It has been a lifesaver for me. It's very high quality stuff, and you know where everything comes from

Well she is back on chicken and rice. She was eating crab grass by the time we got home from our walk. Next time we take her into the vet I want to get some medicine for anti nausea. She is Velco doggy again today. Wouldn't go into the kitchen to get a drink until I did.
Last night she pestered my husband so much that he took her bed and put her in the garage. No accidents of any kind there this morning so that is one thing eliminated.
My husband hasn't had time to buy other dog food yet.
