In a news release, Canidae Pet Foods, in association with and in compliance with the standards and regulations of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), announced the voluntary food safety recall of certain dry pet food formulas over concerns of Salmonella contamination at the Diamond Pet Food plant in Gaston, South Carolina.
This recall applies to all Canidae Dog- All Life Stages, Chicken Meal & Rice, Lamb Meal & Rice, and Platinum foods that feature a “3” in the 9th position and an “X” in either the 10th or 11th positions of the production code and have a “Best Before” date from December 9, 2012 through January 31, 2013. The recalled products were distributed to Florida, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Tennessee. The dry dog food is being recalled due to reports that Salmonella was found to be present in the processing facility where the recalled product is made. No illnesses have been reported in relation to this recall, however Canidae is proceeding with the recall out of an abundance of caution.
Consumers who believe they may be in possession of the recalled dry dog food are encouraged to contact the company directly to receive a replacement of full refund.
As a Harrisburg personal injury lawyer, I have seen this sort of safety recall many times over the course of my practice and understand the tragic illnesses that can result from the handling and consumption of a contaminated food product. If you’ve fallen ill after consuming a contaminated or otherwise defective food product, it could be in your best interests to consult a Lancaster personal injury attorney.Tweet
