Except for the small oversight when it came to their chicken soup foods.



Yup, I am still bitter about the whole thing, and I will never buy or recommend their foods again.

Yah, that line was kinda ludicrous.

What happened with the Chicken Soup line???

I'm feeding Taste of the Wild right now, but as soon as this bag is up, I'm not buying it again. It makes her poops too small and hard for my liking.
Weird, I know.

I had Tyr on the Chicken Soup puppy food at the time, and I hadn't even realized it was made by Diamond.

Tyr got horribly sick with severe bloody diarrhea and vomitting. I took him to the vet, she put him on meds, ran tests, and switched him to ID until he felt better. The tests were all standard tests for the symptoms, and they came back negative.

When he felt better and when the meds were done, I switched him bac to CS. He became sick again within a couple of days. We went back to the vet ~ this time we saw our regular vet, the first time we had seen whoever was available, as it was more of an emergency.

My vet told me to get him off the CS, as it was made by diamond. She had treated three other dogs with the same symptoms who were also on CS, and knew of a few more.

After some research, I found other people on the web who claimed their dogs had gotten sick on CS. I contacted diamond. Diamond said that because aflatoxins bind to corn and there is no corn in CS, CS is fine. I did more research, and found that aflatoxins prefer corn, but will bind to rice. I contacted diamond again. I again got the same answer as before ~ because CS doesn't have corn, it's safe. I had long ago thrown away the remainder of my food, so I couldn't have it tested.

I firmly believe that diamond should have pulled CS, if nothing else then as a precaution. They didn't even seem to look into whether or not CS could have been contaminated.

JESUS!
That is SOOOOOOOO scary!!!!

WOW. Makes me want to pull Ella off this Taste of the Wild after hearing that.

I won't, because that would be me over-reacting, but I will probably be staying away from Diamond made foods in the future.

In all fairness, what happened to Diamond is NOTHING like what happened during this last huge recall. Menu foods KNOWINGLY purchased garbage from China, didn't do the testing, AND left it on shelves/kept it quiet when things started going bad. They didn't fess up until they HAD to.

The problem with Diamond WAS bad but WAAAAY more accidental than what happened with Menu.

I fed Chicken soup at one time as well..........we didn't have any issues thank goodness.

The Diamond settlement sets a precedent and hopefully the other manufacturers will be held accountable for their willful negligence.

I agree Renee. If nothing else good comes of the recalls, then at least this settlement will give industry pause for the future testing and measures to produce a safe product.
