More Fallout from the Diamond Pet Foods Recall

UPDATE 9:17 PM (Central) 5/6/2012: the recall has been expanded to include 11 brands of dog food: Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul; Country Value; Diamond; Diamond Naturals; Premium Edge; Professional; 4Health; Taste of the Wild; Apex; Kirkland Signature/Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain; and Canidae. See the Diamond recall page for information on the brands.

Last week, Diamond Pet Foods expanded its recall of dog foods produced in their Gaston, SC plant due to Salmonella contamination. Also last week, the FDA and CDC announced they were investigting a multistate outbreak of Salmonella infection in people due to contact with the pet food.

The recall was expanded yesterday to include all Natural Balance Pet Foods products produced at that same plant in Gaston. The products recalled include several sizes of several foods: Sweet Potato and Venison; Sweet Potato and Bison; Vegetarian; and Lamb Meal and Brown Rice. WellPet LLC has also recalled Complete Health® Super5Mix® Large Breed Puppy in 15 lb and 30lb bags and in 50z sample bags, all with best by dates of JAN 9 2013 through JAN 11 2013.
