Just do the research and see whats in it.

Fish meal- fine for freshwater.
Marine algae- fine for freshwater
frozen freshwater fish- fine for freshwater.

Pretty much the only thing I would worry about is frozen marine fish and inverts... Cyclops, bloodworms, tubifex, blackworms, etc are fine.

You could even use live blackworms... I be they'd go crazy. Feed them the occasional algae tablet, and they'll have a fairly balanced diet.

Absolutely nothing will escape from my tank again.

I also saw where your state was added to the list of states that have outlawed their sale. Does this also mean you couldn't get one as a gift ? Is it illegal there to own one period ? I would be glad to give you a frog or 2 if it wasn't illegal to do so. PM me.
UPDATE... I just read that it is illegal to buy, sell, own, or even transport them in Oregon without a permit.

And on the same page I also read that Grow-a-frog Kits (tadpoles) can be shipped to all 50 states! Who knows . Don't think I would be able to risk it though.

If they will ship it to you, the Grow-a-frog kits are unconditionally guaranteed to produce a healthy frog. I would do it in a heartbeat if it was the only way to get one. Google it.

I would certainly have picked you up a nice one and shipped it if I could. I had already dug out the live fish styrofoam shipping container I had been saving for just such an opportunity. If you find a loop-hole let me know.
