Additional recalls from Diamond Dog Foods:

Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul - Adult Light Formula

The food was distributed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia. No illnesses have been reported with respect to the recalled product.

Consumers who purchased bags of the recalled food should discontinue feeding the product and discard it, the company said. Consumers can obtain a refund by contacting Diamond Pet.

Pets with salmonella infections may have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain, the company said. If left untreated, pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Infected pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. Owners of pets that have consumed the product should contact a veterinarian, the company says.

Owners handling the food can also become infected, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with surfaces exposed to the affected 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, the company said. Salmonella can also result in more serious ailments, such as arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these symptoms after having contact with the recalled product should contact a healthcare provider.

The recalled products includes:

this sucks..i just baught a bag yester. i have a container that i store my dogfood in. so i dumped the food in the container and threw away the bag and my receipt. my garbage got picked up this morning and i just found out about the recall. so now i have no way of knowing if the food i got is part of the recall or not, and i have no way of getting a refund because i dont have the original bag. i have 2 dogs and have been feeding them Diamond for a long time and i really enjoy it..but now i have to throw away a whole bag of dog food and i dont have the money to go out and buy more food for them...i dont know what im gonna do.

Thanks so much for caring and being honest. I do use Diamond lamb and rice dog food. I'm in Wisconsin and was not effected by this. But of course I did check the numbers on my dog food. We have been very happy with this product and will continue to purchase it. Thanks.
