Editor’s Note: Pet Foods yesterday corrected the list of Diamond Naturals Small Breed Adult Dog Lamb & Rice Formula recalled on Friday to include an additional “best by” date of October 20, 2012.

This story has been updated to include the additional date.The latest involves Diamond Naturals Small Breed Adult Dog Lamb & Rice Formula samples, 6-pound and 18-pound bag sizes manufactured on Aug. 26, 2011. The product was distributed in Colorado, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.

The recalled bags include the following production codes and best before dates:

  • DSL0801, 26-Aug-2012
  • DSL0801, 26-Aug-2012 
  • DSL0801, 27-Sept-2012
  • DSL0801, 18-Oct-2012
  • DSL0801, (Samples)

Meanwhile, two cats at the Humanochat cat shelter in Montreal died and another is sick after eating , according to a report by the Calgary Herald. One person also became ill from handling the food, according to the report.

Diamond issued the first recall on April 6 and two days later shut down production at the Gaston, S.C., plant where the food was produced. Less than a week after, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration inspected the plant and took note of several areas where Diamond failed to take necessary steps to prevent contamination of its finished products. Diamond expanded the recall earlier this month to include brands it produces for other companies, including some cat food, and resumed production at the Gaston plant. A rare strain of Salmonella discovered in the recalled food has been linked to an outbreak of human Salmonella illness that affected 16 people across nine states and Canada.
