Another recall and another reason why I feed my boys a homemade prey model raw diet. I fed Taste of the Wild for years and will often recommend it to people who want a quality dry food. It's very scary that so many pet foods and treats are becoming contaminated...I just tossed out 4 packages of Dogswell chicken and duck jerky treats belonging to my bosses dog when I saw they were made in China. I was told that it's an American plant in China but I don't care, if it's coming from there, it's going right into the trash.

Just checked their webpage and the recall has expanded to 9 brands including a cat food.

www.diamondpetrecall.com/

Diamond Pet Foods today announced that it is expanding a voluntary recall to include batches of nine brands of dry pet food formulas manufactured between December 9, 2011 and April 7, 2012 due to potential Salmonella contamination.

In April 2012, Diamond Pet Foods initiated three voluntary recalls of Diamond manufactured dry dog food. Although none of the additional 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 and decided to independently expand the recall to ensure the safety and well-being of customers and their pets.

The company stated: ďWe have taken corrective actions at our Gaston, S.C., facility and voluntarily expanded the recall out of concern for our customers and their pets.Ē

Brands included in the recall include:

Chicken Soup for the Pet Loverís Soul
Country Value
Diamond
Diamond Naturals
Premium Edge
Professional
4Health
Taste of the Wild
Kirkland Signature (including Nature's Domain)

Natural Balance has a notice also, plus a couple of ots of Canidae & Wellness.

As of the 30th, they've expanded the recall to include Diamond Naturals Puppy. No illnesses reported & the recall is voluntary.

Diamond manufactured products were not involved in the the much scarier Melamine episode a few years ago. Somehow, salmonella seems comparitively mild. Still, watch your dogs & what you're feeding. emoticon

As of 5/5, they've added several varieties of Natural Balance. .

Thanks for the warning Jeanne!

Thankfully, this isn't a brand that we use.

Thank God they are willing to recall it. The biggest problems happen when companies are not willing to do this.

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

Diamond Pet Foods is expanding a voluntary recall to include one production run and four production codes of Chicken Soup for the Pet Loverís Soul Adult Light formula dry dog food. One bag of the product has tested positive for Salmonella, and the recall of the four production codes is being conducted as a precautionary measure. No dog illnesses have been reported.
