Diamond Pet Foods Expands Dog Food Recall Again

Diamond Pet Foods is expanding a voluntary recall to include Diamond Puppy Formula dry dog food. Salmonella was found in the product. No dog illnesses have been reported.

Human beings who handle the food may be exposed to the bacteria. Salmonella causes nausea, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramps. Long term effects of this illness include arthritis, urinary tract problems, hypertension, and heart disease. Some pets will only have decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain, but some dogs can be carriers of the bacteria with no symptoms.

The company requests that anyone who has fed these products to their animals with those symptoms take them to a veterinarian for tests.

The food was distributed in these states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia, and may have been distributed in other states.

For questions, call Diamond Pet Foods at 1-800-442-0402 Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm EST.
