|I eat those occasionally, a couple times a week. But I always have access to kibble and daily have access to other canned foods in my diet as well, so I'm not lacking. The Sheba Premium Cuts always entice me to eat, even when I'm feeling sick, because they taste so good. So Mom will continue to feed them to me, especially when I don't have a good appetite. I think they're fine, as long as they're fed in moderation and not intended to be a complete diet.
I do wish in grocery stores that they were placed along with the treats. It's a bit misleading to find them amongst the canned foods that do meet AAFCO's requirements for a complete and balanced diet. My local PetSmart has them stocked next to the treats; but at my local Kroger, they are right with the other canned foods.
ETA: the Premium Cuts do not have by-products. For example, see the ingredient list for a tin of Ocean Seafood Cocktail with Sauce:
water, tuna, squid, mussels, tapioca starch, guar gum.
Another Edit: I do wish Mars would reformulate this food so that it would be a complete diet. Then consumers wouldn't be misled into purchasing it when it's placed with the canned foods that are nutritionally complete.
