Yet Another Pet Food Recall

Diamond Pet Foods is recalling it's dog food because salmonella was found in the food.  The dog food in question was manufactured in the Gaston, S.C. plant. At least five people got sick from handling the food according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  The theory was that they handled the dog food and then handled their own food.

The brands being recalled are: Country Value, Diamond, Premium Edge, Professional, 4Health and Taste of the Wild brands.  According to Diamond the  use  "best before" dates are December 9, 2012 to April 7, 2013. They were distributed in eastern, southern, central and Midwest states, parts of Canada, but may appear in other states.

Diamond Naturals (particularly the Lamb & Rice dry food, Chicken Soup for the Pets Lover's Soul Adult Light, and Diamond Puppy Formula were recalled in April 2011 because sampling showed that some of their food tested positive for Salmonella. 

Check your shelves. 

I had used Diamond Lamb and Rice Dry food and switched because of a loss of interest by.BJ
