Dog Food Recalled Over Salmonella Concerns
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WWJ/AP) - Salmonella concerns prompting Missouri-based Diamond Pet Foods to issue a second recall on dry dog food sold in Michigan and elsewhere.
Production at a plant in South Carolina was suspended after the first recall earlier this month.
A statement Thursday said the latest recall includes one production run of the company’s Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul Adult Light Formula dry dog food.
The company said one bag tested positive for Salmonella, and the recall is being conducted as a precautionary measure. No dog illnesses have been reported.
The product was distributed to customers in Florida, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia.
The plant is the same one that made mold-contaminated food that killed dozens of dogs nationwide in 2005.
The recall covers:
- Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul 35 lb. CLF0102B31XCW 27/JAN/2013, CLF0102B32XWR 28/JAN/2013
- Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul Adult Light Formula 35 lb. CLF0102B31XCW 28/JAN/2013
- Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul 6lb. CLF0102B3XALW 28/JAN/2013
Concerned customers can call 800-442-0402.
