Currently more is known about the nutrition of dogs and cats than is known about nutrition of humans. America's dogs receiving good commercial dog foods receive a better balanced diet than is consumed by America's children.

Not sure about anywhere else, but in the UK it is a legal requirement that pet food (cats and dogs) is fit for Human consumption. I think that is in case of another "u-boat" type scenario or other food shortage crisis.
EDIT: It's actually taste tested by humans too......

If you want survival food buy rice in 50 or 100 pound sacks and beans in large quantity.. you know "beans and rice".. that combo provides nearly everything a human needs to live well.. throw in a few greens and fruit here and there as you can find them and you should be A-OK
