Diamond Pet Foods of Meta, Mo., recalled several lots of its Diamond Naturals Lamb & Rice dry dog food on April 6 and halted production at the Gaston plant two days later.

The latest recall involves one production run and four production codes of Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul Adult Light Formula dry dog food.

The food was distributed in Florida, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia, where the food may have been further distributed to other states through pet food channels. Diamond said it is working directly with distributors and retailers that carry the recalled food to remove it from the supply chain.

The company advised consumers who purchased the recalled food to discard it immediately.

Product Name Bag Size Production Code Best By Date
Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul Adult Light Formula dry dog food 35lb CLF0102B31XCW
Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul Adult Light Formula dry dog food 6lb CLF0102B3XALW 28/JAN/2013

Pets infected with Salmonella 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. The company advised owners whose pets that have consumed the recalled food and have any of the preceding symptoms to contact their veterinarian.

People handling dry pet food can also become infected with Salmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with surfaces exposed to the product, according to Diamond.

things like this happen all the time.

But why doesn't Diamond pay customer for the remainder of the bag of food? Or at the very least a coupon toward a future purchase?

Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul is a great brand. Really good ingredients and very good for your dog at a good price (petfoodratings.net) We have used it for years and our dog is very healthy. Sorry that it got tainted by this bacteria, but it doesn't take away from how good the food is.
