This is the company's page on their recall.
Salmonella was found in bags of pet food. In one case the open bag of pet food at the home of a person who had salmonella poisoning. There were other cases where testing on the pet food revealed salmonella bacteria.
At least four other pet food manufacturing businesses manufacture their products at the same facility or at least some of their products at this facility. Diamond Pet Food Processors manufacture it for them. That surprises me a little. Is this pet food different or the same as Diamond Pet Food but just repackaged to look different? No idea.
"Several other companies with products manufactured at the Gaston, S.C. facility have issued voluntary recalls" (FDA). These are:
- Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance
- Apex Pet Foods
- Canidae, Wellpet LLC
- Solid Gold Health Products for Pets
I think, however, people need to know that Diamond manufacture for other companies in the same facility and this begs the question: how different is their pet food? Dry pet food is kibble which can shaped and coloured at will.
This website says that we should avoid Diamond Pet Foods because of long standing quality control issues.
