I found a link with all of the complaints submitted from dog owners to FDA before and after their report in 2018 was published. For those concerned about this topic I think it's worth checking if the food we feed came up in complaints.
Also, out of hundreds complains only 5 of them are yorkies.

Something to keep in mind is that just because only 5 yorkies were reported doesnít mean there are not more. I know 4 this happened to that were yorkies, one of which is an extremely close friend. Itís justs not worth the risk because ONLY 5 listed were yorkies. No yorkies listed would still make me not use those foods and ingredients. Grain free was an unfounded fad that popped up with really no science behind it. Itís not just grain free though itís foods using the ingredients of peas, lentils and potatoís as protein sources.
