  • Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain Salmon Meal & Sweet Potato Formula for Dogs (December 9, 2012 through January 31, 2013)

To determine if your pet food is recalled, consumers should check the production code on their bag. If the code has both a "3" in the 9th position and an "X" in the 11th position, the product is affected by the recall. The best-before dates for the recalled products are December 9, 2012 through January 31, 2013.

Affected products were distributed in Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, and Virginia, as well as in Canada and Puerto Rico. However, further distribution to other pet food channels may have occurred.

Pets with salmonella may display a decreased appetite, fever, and abdominal pain. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, contact your veterinarian.

People infected with Salmonella should watch for nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and fever. Diamond Pet Foods is working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which has received a limited number of reports of salmonellosis, the illness caused by Salmonella.

Pet owners who are unsure if the product they purchased is included in the recall, or who would like replacement product or a refund, may contact Diamond Pet Foods via a toll free call at (866) 918-8756, Monday through Sunday, 8 A.M. – 6 P.M. EST. Consumers may also go to www.diamondpetrecall.com for more information.
