Dog Food Recall Again – More Brands Added

Instead of posting my weekly trick, I am posting an updated list of brands that are being recalled, via an e-mail I received, if you feed your dog dry food, it may be on this updated list:

May 4, 2012 – Diamond Pet Foods has today announced that it is expanding its voluntary recall to include batches of nine brands of dry pet food formulations due to potential contamination with Salmonella bacteria.

This current event is in addition to three other recalls announced by Diamond last month.

According to the company, none of the additional products being recalled today have tested positive for Salmonella. However, the manufacturer claims it is pulling these products from store shelves “as a precaution”.
