Diamond Dog Food Recall

Discussion in 'Upland Game hunting, Dogs and dog training' started by Beagleman_Dan, Dec 21, 2005.

  1. To all who use Diamond Dog Food, there are dogs dieing in New York and South Carolina due to a bad batch(es) of Premium (Green & Yellow bag) dog food produced at the Gaston, South Carolina facility.
    This is serious.

    However, I spoke with a representative from Diamond yesterday and they ensured me Indiana suppliers get their food from the Missouri plant.
    None the less, everyone needs to check the production code on the back of the feed bag and be sure there is no 'G' in the code (appx. the 12th character in the code).

    Regardless to say, I am shopping for a new dog food. This scares the heck out of me. If it can happen at one plant, it can happen at another.

    Below is a letter I received from Diamond.

    Daniel,

    Diamond Pet Food has discovered aflatoxin in a product manufactured at our facility in Gaston, South Carolina. Aflatoxin is a naturally occurring toxic chemical by-product from the growth of the fungus Aspergillus flavus, on corn and other crops.



    Out of an abundance of caution, we have notified our distributors and recommended they hold the sale of all Diamond Pet Food products formulated with corn that were produced out of our Gaston facility (see complete list below). Please note that products manufactured at our facilities in Meta, Missouri and Lathrop, California are not affected. The Gaston facility date codes are unique from other Diamond facility codes in that either the eleventh or twelfth character in the date code will be a capital “G” (in reference to Gaston). The range of date codes being reviewed are “Best By 01-March-07” through Best By “11-June-07”. Diamond’s quantitative analysis records substantiate that Diamond’s corn shipments were definitively clear of aflatoxin after December 10. As such, “Best By 11-June-07” date codes or later are not affected by this notice.



    States serviced by our Gaston facility include Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky (eastern), Main, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, Vermont, and Virginia.



    We are rapidly analyzing retained samples of all products produced in Gaston so we can isolate specific lot numbers impacted and provide this information to our distributors, retailers and customers as quickly as possible.



    Meanwhile, if your pet is showing any symptoms of illness, including sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, yellowish tint to the eyes and/or gums, and severe or bloody diarrhea, please consult your veterinarian immediately.



    Product quality and customer satisfaction are important to us. We pledge to keep you updated as new developments occur.

    Dan,

    Thanks for the post. I don't use Diamond (don't even know where to buy it) but I know it's a popular dog food for hunting dogs, and I'm sure some guys on this site should be aware.
