I just got some sample bags of Taste of the Wild from the company. I have been giving Oliver a couple pieces a day as treats and he loves it. Should I stop giving it to him now?

nfedyk--hard to say. I've googled and googled, trying to find out which brands are made in SC--but can't seem to find it. I would call Diamond and ask where TOTW is made and then make a decision from there.

I believe it is in response to the recall involving salmonella
That is what I'm thinking, too....

The voluntary recall is separate. This is a suspension of deliveries of ALL products made at a certain facility, not just the Diamond Naturals Lamb & Rice with the specific lot numbers listed. It does seem like there is probably a connection but Diamond hasn't posted anything about the suspension of deliveries.

The website clearly states that it is a voluntary recall of Diamond Naturals Lamb & Rice formula only and has the lot # listed. While I am not happy about this, at least we see they are paying attention. www.diamondpet.com/information
This is in addition--or in correlation to the recall of the DN L&R

I talked to a Diamond rep:

*They have temporarily halted all deliveries out of SC to do a thorough cleaning and check of ALL products.

*ALL brands they make are manufactured at ALL 3 facilities. So one specific brand is not "safe" at this point.

*They do not believe the salmonella came from the source--but are not sure how it is a potential issue.

*They always screen products before putting it in the food for safety.

*They get the majority of products in the US--but cannot verify which products are outsourced.

I have seen that more information is expected to be released later today. Also, keep in mind, the company is going to tell us what they want to tell us--all the while keeping panic under control and trying to protect their reputation.

On another forum someone posted that it states on the bag where the food is made. I looked at the sample bags I have and all I see is the address for TOTW which is in Missouri.

Does this include the canned food or just the dry? I use 4health canned food with my dogs dry food.

In the code--about 1/2 way to 3/4 way through the code you should see a letter.

X is the SC code.

M is the Missouri code.

Not sure about the 3rd.

Well this is much bigger than I thought. I retract my previous statement. Looks like I may be nixing Diamond products from my rotation for a while...

I saw where more information is expected to be released today. Of course...on a Friday--so Diamond isn't bombarded and/or a lot won't see it because it's the weekend. ;)

I feed SG Barking at the Moon, but as I've read thus far online it sounds like the recall is due to the possibility of human handler contact with Salmonella. I toss the bags once opened and transferred to an airtight container, though I keep meaning to not do that because of exactly this kind of incident. I wish there was more information available, I opened a brand new bag less than a week ago and so far haven't seen anything out of the ordinary (human or canine) thank goodness.
