Default May 4: Diamond recall expanded again...

Diamond Pet Foods Issues Voluntary Recall of Dry Pet Food

Recall is limited to product manufactured between December 9, 2011 through April 7, 2012 and distributed to 16 states and Canada

05/04/12

Diamond Pet Foods has issued a voluntary recall of limited batches of their Diamond and Diamond Naturals dry pet food formulas manufactured between December 9, 2011, and April 7, 2012 due to Salmonella concerns. Diamond Pet Foods apologizes for any potential issues this may have caused pet owners and their pets.

Although none of the products being recalled have tested positive for Salmonella, the company is pulling them from store shelves as a precaution. Diamond Pet Foods is coordinating efforts with federal and state health and regulatory agencies but decided to independently expand the recall to ensure the safety and well-being of customers and their pets.

To determine if your pet food is recalled, consumers should check the production codes on the back of bags. Any production codes that have a number 2 or a 3 in the 9th or 10th digit and an X in the 11th digit in the production code should be discarded. The best before dates are December 9, 2012, through April 7, 2013.

The recall affects only products distributed in the following U.S. states and Canada. Further distribution to other pet food channels may have occurred.

Alabama

Florida

Georgia

Indiana

Kentucky

Massachusetts

Maryland

Michigan

Mississippi

New York

North Carolina

Ohio

Pennsylvania

South Carolina

Tennessee

Virginia

Canada

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 1-866-918-8756, Monday through Sunday, 8 am 6pm EST. Consumers may also go to diamondpetrecall.com for more information. The company is working with distributors and retailers to ensure all affected product is removed from shelves.

Pets with Salmonella infections may have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If left untreated, pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian. We do not have any confirmed reports of pet illnesses.

Individuals handling dry pet food can become infected with Salmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with surfaces exposed to this product. Healthy people who believe they may have been exposed to Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. According to the Centers for Disease Control, people who are more likely to be affected by Salmonella include infants, children younger than 5 years old, organ transplant patients, people with HIV/AIDS and people receiving treatment for cancer. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have received a limited number of reports of salmonellosis, the illness caused by Salmonella. We are working with the CDC, but due to patient confidentiality, we cannot comment further.

CDC links Diamond to Human Salmonella Outbreak.

Wellness large breed puppy is recalled and apparently some Natural Balance is going to be, too... just because they are manufactured in the same plant, they didn't actually test positive for salmonella.

Taste of the Wild has been voluntarily recalled as well

http://www.tasteofthewildpetfood.com/information/

ETA: although reading through that again they never actually say TOTW...but it's on their website and was just put up today so I sort of assumed they were talking about TOTW being recalled. Guess we'll know more in the morning.

Basically anything that's been manufactured at that plant is being pulled. So companies should stop using Diamond plants....

They pulled their products too, the ones made at Diamond, at least.

I really hate to do this over 'one' incident, but I'm saying goodbye to Diamond-made products. If these brands choose to go with another manufacturer, I would be interested, but no more Diamond for me.

Off to Fromm I go.

Me too. We're making the switch to Before Grain Salmon (Merrick) for both the cat and dogs. I just don't like having to wonder all the time about their food!
