Concerned about Kroger Value dry dog food.

I have a 50 lb bag of Kroger Value bite size dog chunks that I feed the raccoons. They won't eat it. The date on it is 20dec11 which is not on the recall list. I've used this brand before (due to cost) and not experienced this problem. Even the stray cats around the neighborhood and possums don't seem to touch the Value. What is going on with this brand?
