Mo.-based pet food maker issues another recall

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Missouri-based Diamond Pet Foods is voluntarily recalling a third type of dry dog food because of salmonella concerns.

All three products were made at a Gaston, S.C., plant, where production was suspended April 8. The plant is the same one that made mold-contaminated food that killed dozens of dogs nationwide in 2005.

A statement Monday from the company said the latest recall involves its Diamond Puppy Formula dry dog food. No canine illnesses have been reported.

The product was distributed to customers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

The company also announced in April that it was recalling batches of its Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul Adult Light Formula and Diamond Naturals Lamb Meal & Rice.

Note from Christina – DDR:

Many of you don’t know this but I lost my dog Matisse several years ago because tainted dog food out of China so I want to make sure you all check your dog food brands and make sure your brand in not on this recall list. The Diamond Pet Food is produced in South Carolina so the recalls cover NC, SC, OH, VA, PA, NY, MI, KY, MA and FLA. Be safe! ~ Christina – Deaf Dogs

  1. I have always fed my dogs Diamond Adult Maintenance and I am in Arizona I buy it at the local Feed Store. So it is sold everywhere

  2. We had trouble with Diamond dog food when we fed it to our new pup about five years ago. It seemed she would get sick with diarrhea, bloody stools, stomach aches, with every other bag of food. The inconsistency of quality along with a sad sick doggie made us switch to a different brand all together. This brand has been recommended to me several times, even by different breeders. I will never touch the stuff again. Diamond uses several animal by-products, therefore, you really don’t know what is in it.
    More recently a friend just told me her dog had supposedly developed an allergy to the food Chicken Soup for the Dog Lovers Soul. After hearing her dog’s symptoms of bloody vomiting and diarrhea, that occurred 3 separate times, I suspect that it was from a few bags of bad food. She has since switched brands. This company is Consistently Inconsistent with quality. I would switch to another food ASAP. And as Christina said- READ the LABELS!!!

  3. I am very happy that there have been no pet deaths; or even sickness, much less that no humans have died! It seems to me that only a good company checks for these before there is trouble. I have used their foods for dogs for manys and my dogs have thrived on them. I am not a vetenarian; nor do I own any of Diamonds stock: but I do believe in giving credit where due. I won’t critisize just for the sake of doing it!

  4. Sadly our Austrailan Shepherd died last month after eating Kirkland dog food from this company.
