Salmonella is a bacterial infection that can affect both animals and humans.  Symptoms may include decreased appetite, diarrhea, fever, vomiting, and abdominal pain.  Pets and people who carry the disease can infect others, so if you or your pet are experiencing symptoms and you have purchased and used the affected dog food, take all due precaution and see a doctor and/or veterinarian.  You can prevent spread of the disease by washing your hands thoroughly and following physician instructions.

If you have purchased one of the recalled pet foods, you should immediately stop feeding it to your animals, and contact the place you purchased the pet food from - refunds may be available.  For complete information, visit the Diamond Pet Foods recall page, the Costco pet product recall pages, the Natural Balance recall page, the Wellness recall page, the Canidae recall page, or the FDA's recall page, which has information on multiple brands in the Animal Health section.  The CDC also has information on documented salmonella contamination.

Diamond is the brand many pointing dog kennels and trainers use. Or did, at any rate, until the 2005 aflatoxin recall in which a number of dogs died as I recall. I no longer use it.

No one that is any good and knows what they are doing feeds Diamond. It is pure crap. You might as well feed sawdust... The ONLY reason anyone feeds it is because it is dirt cheap. And in this case, you get what you pay for.

I am done with Diamond. I have fed it for years with good results but their quality control is out of control. I am going with Purina Pro from now on.

Thank you for the information-I feed only Pedigree to my Husky and Friskies/Purina to my cats, but I left a message for my neighbor who buys that Natural Balance for her Sheltie.

What they aren’t telling you is that “Taste of the Wild” made in Gaston, NC, is also on the recall list. It’s mostly sold through distibutors, but is a (usually) grain free high quality food. I am watching my dam and her 11 day old pups closely for salmonella.

Thanks for the warning but one of my two Portuguese Water Dogs was affected all last week because of this:

Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain Salmon Meal & Sweet Potato Formula for Dogs

She couldn't keep anything in her front or back...she lived though.

Thanks! I finally checked, and neither of my bags are from the affected product line (so far). But at nearly $50/30lbs, I expect better than that of Taste of the Wild. It’s ridiculous to spend that much on friggin dogfood, but one dog has an especially delicate digestive system. The non-salmonella TotW helps a lot with that...

Commercial dog food is bad and should only be fed sparingly.

It is much better to feed dogs human grade food. I feed my five dogs meat and vegetables every night and they are in fantastic health.

It’s not hard to do at all, and it’s less expensive than people think.

My experience exactly, including the switch to Purina. In its early years Diamond had a reputation for premium feeds at a reasonable price. No longer. They’ve done it to themselves.

GREAT! Both of my dogs eat this. The 75 pound, 2 year old female collie has been very sick for 3 weeks. Vomit and yellow diarrhea. Many vet bills plus meds, they were thinking salmonella, but since she was not eating raw they started to look for other stuff.

When will we ever get back to calling it typhoid?
Salmonella is the name of the bacterial that causes the disease, typhoid.
Remember Typhoid Mary? She was the carrier of the salmonella bacteria that got so many people sick with typhoid.

I have 4 bags of the 4 Health which is on the recall list, its going back this afternoon. I mix it with Royal Canin for my two German Shepherds. My female shepherd has a delicate digestive system and the combination is very satisfactory. I cut cost by mixing the less expensive with the more expensive. They have eaten about a third of a bag and they are fine as well as myself. Can’t wait to get rid of it and its a crime that this happens, usually by the time we get the word, its too late. Hopefully not this time.

No offense Slings and Arrows, but that list is incomplete at this time. Diamond made a real mess out of communicating with the public regarding these recalls. They trickled out information all weekend long and even their own list is incomplete...Wellness isn’t on it!


Diamond Pet Foods has voluntarily recalled some brands of dry dog and cat food that it manufactured in its Gaston, S.C. facility between December 9, 2011 and April 7, 2012 due to potential Salmonella contamination. The brands that were recalled on May 4 have not tested positive for Salmonella. The company is recalling certain batches of these brands, however, as a precautionary measure to ensure the safety and well-being of customers and their pets. Consumers should check this website for the production codes and best-before dates on the bags of recalled food, and discontinue feeding it. To learn whether or not the brand of dog or cat food you use is included in the recall, please select it from the list below. Please note: we have issued CORRECTED production codes for all the brands below except for Apex. Each brand’s page will have the CORRECTED production codes.

•Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul
•Country Value
•Diamond
•Diamond Naturals
•Premium Edge
•Professional
•4Health
•Taste of the Wild

•Apex
•Kirkland Signature/Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain
•Canidae

Have you tried Nature’s Variety Foods?

Test & Hold Protocol
Nature’s Variety utilizes a “test and hold” protocol to ensure that all products test negative for harmful bacteria before being released for sale.

Nature’s Variety uses a third party laboratory to test every lot of finished product in order to confirm that it is negative for select pathogenic bacteria (Salmonella, E. coli O157:H7, and Listeria monocytogenes). When the test results are reviewed and confirmed negative, the product is released for shipment to our distributor partners and then on to retail stores.

I put out some asparagus for my two dogs yesterday. One of them ate it, but the other one didn’t, the ingrate. - They count on their slice of baloney every night, cheese sometimes. Peanut butter and crackers, I feed for laughs when it sticks to the roofs of their mouths. They like it; but it does stick to the roofs of their mouths. They also like their Purina dry food and nibble on it as they like. The cat likes her tuna and sliced deli turkey breast; Nine Lives is the only one she can keep down (dry kind).

They are all “gold bricks”; attractive and valuable, but just lay there most of the time.

Our cats wouldn’t eat the Costco dry food. I returned the bag and bought Purina at the grocery store (which they love). They tend to barf up the dry Friskies brand (but will eat the Friskies wet food in small cans),

My 8yr old Golden, (Josh) is sick as a dog. (sorry not funny)
He’s done well with Canidae dry for many years. Current bag of Canidae Chicken & Rice formula doesn’t meet the recall information but what else could it be? He’s never sick.
Found out about the recall today. Took him to the Vet’s. He’s running a slight fever.
Three meds and boiled ground beef and rice for three days.
The Vet thinks he’ll be OK.

We've been making our own dog food from quality human-grade ingredients since 2007. It takes a few minutes a week (which reminds me...I've got to make it tonight!).

The only problem has been vets. We learned a long time ago to tell them that our dogs are fed a high-dollar dry food (I usually say Science Diet because that is the brand that the vet sells). Otherwise we get serious negative feedback. We actually had to get a new vet at one point because the old vet refused to render a diagnosis for a potentially serious issue on account of the dog being fed "table scraps" and refused to treat the dog further until we switched him to commercial dry food for ten days.

Also learned never to tell the vet that you buy pet meds online. I swear that if they could have called the cops on us they would have.

My dogs eat chicken, pork or beef. They don’t like dog food. One will eat it sometimes but usually not. I cook for them. Wish they would eat dog food, though. A lot less work and cost.

In case nobody’s heard of it, 4Health is the new “store brand” that Tractor & Supply started carrying last year.

*Some* of the varieties were pretty decent food.

So much for that.

Diamond has their filthy hands in everything.

It’s just one variant of salmonella:

A distinction is made between enteritis Salmonella and Salmonella typhoid/paratyphoid Salmonella, where the latter—because of a special virulence factor and a capsule protein (virulence antigen)—can cause serious illness, such as Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Typhi. Salmonella typhi. is adapted to humans and does not occur in other animals.

Just for the sake of helping him along, start stuffing probiotics into him, too.

ProBios is good and is available at feed stores.

The big box pet stores will have probiotics, too.

If you can’t find those, LIVE culture yogurt is better than nothing.

Hope your pup gets well soon.

Most commercial food is made with corn and other grains, which are not very good for dogs.

If the first few ingredients are corn or cornmeal, stay away from that brand.

The video by NaturalBalance’s president makes the problem a little clearer for users of that brand. In short, Diamond Foods is a co-manufacturer of several formulas for different dog food companies and Diamond’s facilities are the problem.

My dog’s food is home cooked fresh low-fat pork loin suplemented with a handful of Natural Balance’s potato and duck small bites.

In the approx half hour, since I posted the *Diamond* image above, I tracked down that the bag of Canidae we feed The Winchester isn’t in the recall. Phew! We wouldn’t have qualified for a return/rebate b/c we didn’t have the receipt.

Good night nurse...another thing to worry about. Geez.:(

This affects people not dogs. The people effected are immuned compromised (ex: AIDS patients). Dogs can eat rotten stuff (carrion) with no ill effects, people can’t.
I’ll just continue my policy of not eating dog food.
