An NBC News article last month updating the situation:

Excerpt:
“We continue to see dogs coming into our hospital affected by this problem,” said Dr. Lisa Freeman, a veterinary nutritionist and professor at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. “It’s not going away.”

Unfortunately, Freeman said, the solution is probably not going to be a simple one, and the suspect foods are not just those described as “grain free.” She and others are now investigating a broader class of foods, dubbed “BEG” foods: ones that are made by boutique companies, contain exotic ingredients, or are grain-free.

The FDA echoes Freeman’s concerns about a complex solution.

“At this time, it is not clear what it is about some diets that may be connected to DCM in dogs, but FDA believes it may be multi-factorial,” said Monique Richards, an FDA spokesperson. “There are multiple possible causes of DCM.”

Same, I put my goldendoodle on natures logic duck and salmon kibble and we have had no issues and he loves it. It’s a bit pricey but well worth it :). Have had no problems since we started him on his new food. He’s about 6 months old now and 28 pounds.
