Diamond pet food has had a recall on several brands of dog food recently due to salmonella. The company has announced that they are expanding their recall to include some selected types of cat food as well.
If you have been feeding Diamond brands to your pets, check the labels and discard the food. The cat foods added to the recall are:
Kirkland Signature Super Premium Maintenance Cat Chicken and Rice Formula
Kirkland Signature Super Premium Healthy Weight Cat Formula
Like with the dog food, the cat food is being recalled for possible salmonella contamination. The brands that have been affected are thought to have left their factory between Dec 2011 and April 2012. The brands that have been recalled but were manufactured after April have not tested positive for salmonella. However, as a precautionary measure, please check your brands of food and discontinue feeding it if it is one of the following:
Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul
Taste of the Wild
Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain
