    I pour my food in an air tight seal container as well from petsmart and have never had any problems! Good luck!

    Thanks for the advice everyone!

    I have done a good job of cleaning the containers with a anti-bacterial kitchen spray but, just to be safe, since I just opened another bag, I am going to clean them up really well again and if that doesn't work, I am going to call the place I get the food since it's been a reoccurring problems and I'm not sure where they are storing them or if they are rotating them properly. I did check the expiration date on this bag and it's still fresh and I inspected the bag carefully so it should be good.

    If I continue to have my problems, I think I am going to try what Libra does and see if I can split it up and put it in the fridge or freezer.

    Also, just a reminder to everyone that it's wise to save your dog food bag for a couple days after open it just in case there's a problem - the place I buy food has a policy that you must have the bag to make a return!

    @sheshistory, what about keeping it in the bag and putting it in the container? I posted earlier that I have not had this problem, but the inside of the bags have a waxy covering so maybe that would help? I keep Vegas's bag a good 10 days after I open from learning from a post a few months ago.

    Yes, that's another idea - to make it harder in case anything is trying to get in - plus I think the bags have a zip lock up at the top.

    Yes you should be ashamed for not treating your bully and his food in the correct way .... Lex is obviously mis-treated and needs to come and live with me where he can be fed from a plastic air-tight container!! When can I expect his arrival?????
