Q: My 8 yr old Lab, adopted, was outdoors, eating Kirkland. Now she's indoors, eating Nutro Lamb & Rice
She's scratching madly, patches are coming out of the coat, w/ red skin (no lesions). The breeder insists the food is to blame - can't find info on here to compare food ingr.

Could be skin mites.
Though poor diet could led to skin patches, especially if she is scratching dry skin. Does she have dandruff? Check the ingredients on your dog's food. It should be listed on the packaging. The first two ingredients should be some type of meat or by-product. Any fillers such as corn should be lower on the list.
