Diamond Foods Pet Food Recall

Last week, Diamond Foods issued a voluntary recall of several lines of dry kibble product distributed throughout several states, including South Carolina. The recalled product was manufactured between December 9, 2011 and April 7, 2012 and is being pulled due to potential Salmonella contamination at a Gaston, SC plant. Affected brands include:
 Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul
Country Value
Diamond
Diamond Naturals
Premium Edge
Professional
4Health
Taste of the Wild
Canidae
Natural Balance
Wellness
Apex
Kirkland Signature
To determine if their pet food is recalled, consumers should check the production code on their bag. If the code has a "2" or "3" in the 9th position AND an "X" in the 10th or 11th position, the product is affected by the recall. The best-before dates for the recalled products are December 9, 2012 through April 7, 2013.
Diamond Pet Foods apologizes for any issues this may cause consumers and their pets. Pet owners who are unsure if the product they purchased is included in the recall, or who would like replacement product or a refund, may contact Diamond Pet Foods via a toll free call at 1-866-918-8756, Monday through Sunday, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. EST. Consumers may also go to a special website, www.diamondpetrecall.com, for more information and for specific codes for which line of each brand is being recalled. The company is working with distributors and retailers to ensure all affected product is removed from shelves.
*Note -- We aren't sure why Wellness isn't listed on the Diamond Foods site. Perhaps they have not updated yet, as LCDM only received the email from Wellness regarding the pulled product on Sunday, May 6th 2012. Wellness told us that the voluntary recalled product from their line is: Wellness Complete Health® Super5Mix® Large Breed Puppy, 15 and 30 lb. bags and 5 oz. samples with best by dates of JAN 9 2013 through JAN 11 2013. No other recipes, sizes or WellPet brands of food are impacted by this voluntary recall.
