CANIDAE has issued a voluntary recall of limited batches of their dry pet food formulas manufactured between December 9, 2011, and April 7, 2012 due to Salmonella concerns.

Customers who have purchased CANIDAE Dry Dog Food are advised to check the production codes on the back of the following dog food bags.

  • CANIDAE Dog Dry Dog Food, Lamb Meal & Rice

Only CANIDAE dry dog food formulas with production codes that must have BOTH a number “3” in the 9th position AND an “X” in the 10th or 11th position with a best before dates of December 9, 2012, through January 31, 2013 are affected by the pet food recall. 

According to a letter obtained by Diamond Pet Foods, none of the products being recalled have tested positive for Salmonella. The company, however, has decided to expand the recall and is coordinating efforts with federal and state health and regulatory agencies. 

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
