Latest Diamond Pet Foods recall comes from a different plant?

Truth About Pet Food is reporting that the latest recalled foods have come from a different plant than the original recall.

Now I haven’t quite figured out how they can tell that, I’m not sure if I’m blind, or if they have information I don’t, BUT what is clear is that this new recall includes states that were NOT part of the original recall:

The product was distributed in the following states, further distribution through other pet food channels may have occurred:

  • Colorado
  • Illinois
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • Missouri
  • Oklahoma
  • Pennsylvania
  • South Dakota
  • Tennessee
  • Texas
  • Wisconsin

 

 

Note is also made that two of the recalled foods where MADE in Augest of 2011, and not bagged for one or two months later.  And yet the “expire date” goes with the bagged date and not the manufacture date.

 

Production Code & Best Before Dates:

DSL0801, 26-Aug-2012

DSL0801, 26-Aug-2012

DSL0801, 27-Sept- 2012 (Product manufactured on Aug. 26, 2011 and packaged on Sept. 27, 2011)

DSL0801, 18-Oct- 2012 (Product manufactured on Aug. 26, 2011 and packaged on Oct. 18, 2011)

Makes me wonder if we’re about to get a whole NOTHER list of recalled foods….

    At least Diamond is honest enough to recall their products. I have had trouble in the past with Chloe getting sick on Science Diet and Nutro products. I looked to see if there was a recall; not a peep in the news or on the companies’ websites. At least with the Nutro experience, the store refunded the purchase price when I returned it.

    They are recalling, but they’re not doing it very well. The recalled lots keep changing, and they keep adding on new stuff (some stores weren’t aware that the recall included CAT food, not just dog food). Either their record keeping sucks and they can’t figure out what was made when/where or they REALLY don’t want to admit that all of this was made there. Plus there are some real questions raised by the FDA report (cardboard and duct tape for repairs of the machines??), like, why was “animal fat” and “digest” even in the plant when none of the foods are supposed to contain them (these two ingredients are considered extremely LOW quality, and when tested often contain traces of the chemicals used to euthanize pets….).

    That said I’m so NOT a fan of Science diet, my vet and I had a big argument about putting Janie on it and in the end she refused to eat it and I refused to try to force her.
