Pet Owners Urged to Discard Recalled Pet Food Due to Risk of Salmonella Poisoning


dogThe Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA) urges pet owners to discard packages of pet food voluntarily recalled by Diamond Pet Foods due to potential Salmonella contamination to pets and people. The company and several others with products manufactured at the Gaston, S.C. facility are recalling certain products in cooperation with federal food safety and health agencies. MDA is supporting the recall by informing retailers that carry the pet food to remove the affected products from sale and to return them to the manufacturer.

Consumers who have any of these products should discard them immediately. When disposing of unopened containers of the recalled product do not open the container. Place it in a sealable bag, wrap two plastic bags around it and tape it tightly. Dispose in household trash out of reach of humans and pets. To dispose of an open container wear gloves and face/mouth/eye protection and proceed with directions as for an unopened container. After disposing of the product, slowly remove gloves and face protector and dispose of in a manner that puts the gloves out of reach of humans and pets. Remember to wash hands with soap and running water for at least two minutes after handling pet food. Keep crawling children away from pet food bowls on the floor.
