Dog Food Recall – Diamond Recalls Yet Another Product

Okay, this is getting ridiculous.  I am beyond frustrated and am making sure that everyone knows about these recalls.  The shelter in the area used to generally feed this food.  Now they are heartsick that they may have made some of the dogs and themselves ill.  Here is the e-mail I received:

May 18, 2012 — Diamond Pet Foods has announced yet another voluntary dog food recall involving one more of its products due to possible contamination with Salmonella bacteria.

The event was reported by the company in a news release dated May 18, 2012.

The recall includes Diamond Naturals Small Breed Adult Dog Lamb and Rice Formula samples, 6 pound and 18 pound bags manufactured on Aug. 26, 2011.

Salmonella infections can affect both humans and non-human animals and are the result of ingesting contaminated food.

  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • Missouri
  • Oklahoma
  • Pennsylvania
  • South Dakota
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Wisconsin

What to Do?

Salmonella is serious business — for both you and your pet. So, if you can confirm your dog’s food is one of the products being recalled, stop feeding or handling it immediately.

If you’ve discarded the packaging (something we recommend you never do) – or you’re in any way in doubt – do not take chances. Be safe. Stop feeding the product anyway.

As far as what to do with your recalled product, the company suggests:

Pet owners who are unsure if the product they purchased is included in the recall, or who would like replacement product or a refund, may contact Diamond Pet Foods via a toll free call at 866-918-8756, Monday through Sunday, 8 AM to 6 PM EST

You can report complaints about FDA-regulated pet food products by calling the consumer complaint coordinator in your area.
