You could switch to an adult breed performance food. Comapare ingredients, they are pretty close. And their performance blends claim they are for all life stages. It is pretty comparable to puppy food.

I was sick of buying 2 different types for my dogs so I just switched my 5mo GSP to what my lab eats (PPP)

Yeah LBP wasn't part of that though, at least not to my knowledge unless they've updated the recall to include more
