Default petguard food - good/bad/indifferent?

In the never-ending search for safe food, I ran into this product at a
health store, while looking for rice flour for me. I'm not big on the
kibble idea, especially right now, but need something that my mother-in-law
will feed her - as she won't even touch poultry (literally - we took a
dehydrated chicken foot over last night for a treat in her kong, and well,
it was still there when we got back. She did get the lamb lung - that
wasn't a problem) - and since Atty's allergic to beef, well, I need kibble!

I haven't actively looked for a food for about 9 years now, other than
reading some of the threads here. So, any thoughts/experiences with/about
this food?

They recommend 2-3 cups for Atty's weight 51-75 pounds (she's 60, give or
take a pound depending on how much flyball/agility she's done and how many
treats my mother in law gives her!)

She's on Proplan chicken/rice right now - and I know they say they are fine,
but............ I'm keeping my options open for when the bag runs out in
about 2-3 weeks.

The sample I brought home touts (with some added bold print/all capital
FREE/WITHOUT/etc) :

without animal by products
free of beet pulp
free of yeast, soy and wheat
free of artificial colors and flavors
naturally preserved with vitamine E
no bha, bht or ethoxyquin
