In a press release, Diamond Pet Foods, in conjunction with and in compliance with the standards and guidelines of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), announced the expansion of their voluntary food safety recall of dry dog food to include one production run and four production codes of Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul Adult Light formula dry dog food over concerns of salmonella.
The original recall was initiated on April 6 of this year and included Diamond Naturals Lamb and Rice dry dog food in 6-, 20- and 40-pound bags with various expiration dates. The expansion of that recall includes 6- and 35-pound bags of Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul Adult Light formula dry dog food with production codes CLF0102B31XCW, CLF0102B32XWR, and CLF0102B3XALW and feature “Best By” dates of either 27/JAN/2013 or 28/JAN/2013. The expansion was put into action after the company learned that one bag of the adult light formula dry dog food tested positive for salmonella. These recalls are being carried through to their completion as a precautionary measure; no pet illnesses have been reported as of yet.
Consumers are being encouraged to contact the company to verify that their dog food is included in this recall, and to receive a replacement or refund.
