The newest pet food recall from Diamond Pet Food has now been expanded to 39 states after salmonella was found in some of their batches.
Other pet food companies use Diamond’s manufacturing facility in Gaston, SC and have issued recalls for some of their products as well. Solid Gold, Wellness, Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul and Natural Balance are in this group.
It’s important to follow this and make sure that your pet’s food isn’t included in the expanding recall. There is a link online diamondpetrecall.com but I don’t know how up to date it is regarding the other brands that may be affected.
Signs of salmonella poisoning in dogs and cats are lethargy, vomiting, diarrhea (could be bloody), fever and poor appetite. This is something that can transmitted to other pets and to humans. Humans can also be infected by handling infected bags of pet food.
