Default Diamond dog food recall, possible salmonella

Found this on another forum. Do not know if anyone on the forum uses this brand.

Here is the link to their site:

http://www.diamondpet.com/information/

Diamond Pet Foods Voluntarily Recalls Limited Number of
Dry Dog Food Bags Due to a Potential Health Risk
Recall is limited to one formula of Diamond Naturals distributed to 12 states; no illnesses reported

Consumer Contact: 800-442-0402
Media Contact: 816-255-1974

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – April 06, 2012

Diamond Pet Foods is voluntarily recalling Diamond Naturals Lamb Meal & Rice. This is being done as a precautionary measure, as the product has the potential to be contaminated with salmonella. No illnesses have been reported and no other Diamond manufactured products are affected.

Individuals handling dry pet food can become infected with salmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with surfaces exposed to this product. Healthy people infected with salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, salmonella can result in more serious ailments including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

Pets with salmonella infections may have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If left untreated, pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

The product, Diamond Naturals Lamb Meal & Rice, was distributed to customers located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia, who may have further distributed the product to other states, through pet food channels.

Product Name Bag Size Production Code & “Best Before” Code

Diamond Naturals Lamb & Rice 6lb DLR0101D3XALW Best Before 04 Jan 2013

Diamond Naturals Lamb & Rice 20lb DLR0101C31XAG Best Before 03 Jan 2013

Diamond Naturals Lamb & Rice 40lb DLR0101D32XMS Best Before 04 Jan 2013

Consumers who have purchased the Diamond Naturals Lamb & Rice with the specific production and “Best Before” codes should discontinue feeding the product and discard it.

At Diamond Pet Foods, the safety of our products is our top priority. We apologize for any inconvenience this recall may have caused. For further information or to obtain a product refund please call us at 800-442-0402 or visit www.diamondpet.com.

Still, wash your hands good, anyway, after handling the dog food. Why take a chance?

Now that is a damn good question? I would think not. Dogs will eat anything that does not eat them first. The thing that has always amazed me is Chocolate. That stuff will put a dog down. Some times fast some times slow. Large amounts of Raw chicken eaten by a dog at one time is real bad also.

No, they cannot. The only harm would be to the owner who may handle that dog food and not wash hands thoroughly afterwards.

It's not milk chocolate that will hurt the dog but the bakers chocolate. My dogs eat M&Ms and chocolate cakes all the time. Raw Chicken is a big part of the B.A.R.F diet for dogs.
Don't feed them Onions.
Diamond has had issues in the past with recalls.

Apparently they can. It is implied in the language of the recall, but I wasn't sure either, so I searched for info. It turns out that canines can get salmonella infections/poisoning.

The recall doesn't apply to the Diamond product that I buy, but I was glad that it was posted here. Thanks again to OP!
