Diamond Naturals recalls tainted dog food

ATLANTA - Diamond Pet Foods is voluntarily recalling its Diamond Naturals Lamb Meal & Rice dry dog food because it may be contaminated with salmonella. A statement from the company Friday said no illnesses have been reported and no other Diamond products are affected.

Pets that eat the food or people who handle it could become infected with salmonella. Healthy people infected with salmonella would have nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and fever. Pets with salmonella may have decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain.

The product was distributed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Virginia. It is possible those customers may have distributed it to other states.
