If you do a search on this forum, you'll find tons of great information.
Here is a web site with lists of foods not on any recall. http://www.thepetfoodlist.com/
My personal opinion is that it's impossible to know what's safe anymore! After much research, I'm currently feeding my cats a combination of Natural Balance, Evangers, and Meow Mix. Natural Balance did have recalls of one flavor of wet (Ocean Fish) and dry (Venison and Green Pea), but supposedly they've tested everything and it's all okay. Evangers cans their own. Meow Mix - who knows - it hasn't turned up on any recall lists yet.
I just ordered the new flavor of Wellness (Beef and Salmon - without garlic) and some Eagle Pack to try. Wellness is supposedly removing garlic from all the flavors, so I'm waiting for the grain free ones to make it to the store near me to try.
Felidae is supposed to be okay, but mine won't eat it. Ditto for Merricks.
If you're looking for an online store where you can buy individual cans to try, I've bought from this one http://phydeauxpets.com/mm5/merchant.mvc
I've had to try a bunch of different brands / flavors before I found something they would eat (well..that Cindy would eat. I don't think Swanie has met a wet food he didn't like
). Hopefully, your Persian isn't as picky as my Calico.
