Default Diamond's SC plant suspending all shipments

FYI.

http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/dog-fo...nds-shipments/

This is affecting my store directly - we've gotten no SKUs for TOTW or Natural Balance this week and will have to suggest alternatives to our customers.

Depending on where you are, Acana GF is a good temporary replacement for TOTW, there are a few other similar formulas as well.

ugh. Working this weekend will be fuuuun.

TOTW is manufactured at and shipped from all three Diamond plants, so the other two plants should still be shipping TOTW... strange.

I don't know about the other brands they manufacture at that plant though.

We just got a shipment of TOTW and NB yesterday, perhaps it was older stock though.

Not many feed either where i work though so it's not been a huge issue, but our daily memos has talked about what's going on.

You might get it from one of the other facilities, though. There's one in California which is likely closer to you.

Not many feed Natural Balance on our store, but we have a number of folks on TOTW.

No ToTW, Chicken Soup, or Premium Edge for my store...I didn't see any Canidae come in either but not sure if it was on the order. The few people that asked about it were all very concerned and actually decided to switch foods. Not good for Diamond.

Ours comes through PetValu itself I believe, from the food company to their warehouse which I believe is in Ontario and then to us.

TOTW here is more expensive than Acana so no one feeds it here.

Truth. We're working on switching folks over regardless, informing them of what's happened. Diamond's had way too many iffy things happen, and they're being very quiet about this whole fiasco.

I came across the below consumer affairs link from another forum I am on.
It's getting to be scarey what is going on w/pet foods the past 5 years.
I am going to have to check the 3 bags of NB Potato Duck Limited Diet kibble I just bought today.

We're switching Knox to Cali Naturals Herring and Sweet Potatoes. He'd been iffy on these last two bags of TOTW and we throw the.bag away after dumping it into the bin, so no clue on lot number.

I don't trust anything that comes out of their factories anymore. Not a risk that I am willing to take when there are so many more reputable companies out there making awesome pet foods.
