Fluckers premium pellet diet?

I am not sure if it is ok to feed them this. It does not have Ethoxyquin or Copper Sulfate in it.
I have two dogs. A new owner of three hermit crabs as of July 2020.

The HCA doesn't recommend any commercial diets because of the preservatives, but this one does not have the really bad stuff listed.

Hermit crabs can eat a lot of the same things that we eat. Just check to make sure the item is on the safe list. Foods should be organic when possible. Hermit crabs are sensitive to pesticides and fertilizers.
You also want to provide one or more calcium sources at all times. Examples would be Cuttlebone, Organic Eggshell, Oyster Shell, Lobster Exo, Shrimp Exo.
Make sure you cover all aspects of food pyramid :)
