Diamond Pet Foods, a pet food manufacturing company headquartered in Missouri, has announced a voluntary recall for three varieties of dry dog food due to a risk of salmonella contamination. All three of these varieties of pet food were manufactured at the same plant in Gaston, South Carolina. In 2005, this plant manufactured mold contaminated dog food that killed dozens of canines throughout the United States. The latest variety of dog food to be recalled is Diamond Puppy Formula dry dog food in eight pound, twenty pound, 40 pound, and 6 ounce sample packages imprinted with best buy dates ranging from January 11, 2013 to April 7, 2013, and production codes DPP0401B22XJW, DPP0401A21XAW, DPP0101C31XME, DPP0401B21XDJ, DPP0401B22XJW, DPP0101C31XME, DPP0101C31XRB, DPP0401B2XALW, and DPP0401. The products affected by this recall were distributed for sale at retail outlets in, Pennsylvania, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Virginia, Michigan, South Carolina, North Carolina, Ohio, Alabama, Tennessee and Maryland. Last month, Diamond Pet Foods announced a recall for two other varieties of pet food: Diamond Naturals Lamb Meal & Rice and Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul Adult Light Formula.
As a San Jose personal injury lawyer, I am hopeful that this recall is carried out successfully before any illness is caused by this potential contamination issue. If you or someone you care about has been harmed by a contaminated or defective product, please consider contacting a personal injury attorney in Burlingame.
