Pet food maker issues another recall
KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI - May 1, 2012 (WPVI) -- Missouri-based Diamond Pet Foods is voluntarily recalling a third type of dry dog food because of salmonella concerns.
All three products were made at a Gaston, S.C., plant, where production was suspended April 8. The plant is the same one that made mold-contaminated food that killed dozens of dogs nationwide in 2005.
A statement Monday from the company said the latest recall involves its Diamond Puppy Formula dry dog food. No canine illnesses have been reported.
The product was distributed to customers in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
