EDITORS’ NOTE: The production code information has been changed to reflect an update from Diamond. The correct way to tell if one of the listed foods (not including Kirkland Signature food) has been recalled is if it has a production code with the number “2" or “3" in the 9th digit and an “X" in the 10th or 11th digit and “Best-Before" dates of Dec. 9, 2012, through Apr. 7, 2013.
Diamond recalled three brands of dry dog food: Diamond Naturals Lamb and Rice Formula for Adult Dogs, Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul Adult Light Formula and Diamond Puppy Formula. The company ceased production at the Gaston facility in April after samples from each of the brands tested positive for a rare strain of salmonella, S. Infantis.
Public health officials linked the strain to an outbreak of human salmonella infections, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention launched an investigation to determine if other brands of food produced in Gaston may be linked to the illnesses.
As a precautionary measure, Diamond expanded the recall to include:
o Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul
o Country Value
o Diamond Naturals
o Premium Edge
