It is worrisome considering how many different brands they manufacture, and how these things are coming out slowly, one food/brand at a time.

I agree..I just emailed Costco as I feed Kirland's Lamb and Rice dry food, and Diamond makes their products as well. Waiting for a response, as my dog is fine at the present time, but I've read where some people are having problems with Costco's food..concerned to say the least

It sounds like everything's connected to that South Carolina plant...unfortunately for me, I can only get the TOTW made in that plant! You can tell by the X in the product code.

the risk is NOT to dogs, healthy dogs do not get food poisening, thier stomach ph is VERY inhospitable fo salmonealla...
the RISK is to the humans handling the food and that is whats prompeted the recal.

Your dogs are fine...(assuming otheriwse healthy)
Humans however should be sure to wash their hands...

the new recal is for their regular puppy, not their naturals line which makes me think its a problem with the corn or soy and not the meat itself. (the first recal on the lamb and rice was a worry about the lamb source)

that beng said you gotta do what you gotta do.
i feed dimamond NATURALS chicken and rice, i will continue and am watching my dogs (and myself) carefully. (im more worried about ME than the dogs given its a salmonella scare)

I'm not worried about the salmonella, I've just tired of Diamond foods and their recalls. I've been meaning to try a new dog food brand anyway now this just gives me an excuse to do so, lol.

as long as ingredients are high quality...
BUT if you do some reaserch yoll find Most of the big brands have had at least one recal in the last 3 years.

the ONLY sure thing is raising and butchering your own meat to feed your animals (which i personally plan on doing and am in the beginning phases)...least with that method you can control not only what the food was eating when it was alive, what medications it was given and how it was procesed but you can also control EXACTLY what else goes with the meat.
