    Diamond Further Expands Dog Food Recall
    Diamond Pet Foods expanded its recall of pet food produced at its Gaston, S.C., manufacturing facility to include six additional brands and resumed production at the facility.
    Posted: May 6, 2012, 8 p.m. EDT

    EDITORS' NOTE: The production code information has been changed to reflect an update from Diamond. The correct way to tell if one of the listed foods (not including Kirkland Signature food) has been recalled is if it has a production code with the number “2” or “3” in the 9th digit and an “X” in the 10th or 11th digit and “Best-Before” dates of Dec. 9, 2012, through Apr. 7, 2013.

    Diamond recalled three brands of dry dog food: Diamond Naturals Lamb and Rice Formula for Adult Dogs, Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul Adult Light Formula and Diamond Puppy Formula. The company ceased production at the Gaston facility in April after samples from each of the brands tested positive for a rare strain of salmonella, S. Infantis.

    Public health officials linked the strain to an outbreak of human salmonella infections, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention launched an investigation to determine if other brands of food produced in Gaston may be linked to the illnesses.

    The first recall of this company's dry dog food started back on April 6th but amazingly no one seems to have heard of the recall. This first recall was followed by a second, expanded recall, on April 26 and then a third even more expanded recall on April 30th. Yet not one pet owner I know was aware of the recall at all!!! Kind of a failure in notification procedures don't you think!

    Here is additional info from the CDC.

    Highlights

    A total of 14 individuals infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Infantis have been reported from 9 states. The number of ill persons identified in each state is as follows: Alabama (1), Connecticut (1), Michigan (1), Missouri (3), North Carolina (3), New Jersey (1), Ohio (2), Pennsylvania (1), and Virginia (1).

    Among the 9 patients with available information, 5 (56%) were hospitalized. No deaths have been reported. Multiple brands of dry pet food produced by Diamond Pet Foods at a single manufacturing facility in South Carolina have been linked to some of the human Salmonella infections.

    Consumers should check their homes for recalled dog food products and discard them promptly. People who think they might have become ill after contact with dry pet food or with an animal that has eaten dry pet food should consult their health care providers.

    They weren't eating the dog food, they were handling it when giving it to their pets. HMB

    I fed Diamond dog food years ago and quit when they had a recall way back then. I can't believe they are still in business.
