Diamond Pet Foods has announced a voluntary recall of one formula of its dry dog food.

Why It's Being Recalled
The voluntary recall is due to possible salmonella contamination, which affects both the animals eating the food and any humans who come into contact with it. So far, no dogs have been reported to have become sick from the food.

What's Being Recalled
Diamond is recalling some bags of its Diamond Naturals Lamb & Rice dry dog food formula. UPDATE: As of 4/27/12, the recall has been expanded to include some bags of Diamond's brand Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul dry dog food as it has tested positive for salmonella contamination.

Thanks for posting this, It's really hard to trust diamond nowadays. Canidae(what I'm feeding right now) used to be manufactured in their plant, thankfully they bought their own facility a couple weeks back. Good move on their part

Diamond does seem to have a lot of recalls. Thankfully most dogs don't get sick from salmonella. It's probably more of a danger to people who feed their dogs the contaminated food and then don't wash their hands.
