Statement from Diamond Pet Foods Regarding Inaccurate TV News Reports
July 13, 2012
News stories airing this week on local television newscasts in select cities across the country are incorrect. News reports have stated that May 4, 2012 recalled pet food manufactured by Diamond Pet Foods might still be on store shelves. This information is incorrect and misleading.
We assure you that all pet food brands manufactured by Diamond Pet Foods that are currently on your retailer’s shelf are safe for you to purchase, and for your pets to consume.
We made every effort to pull affected product off the shelf immediately when we issued a recall on May 4. We were successful in those efforts, and new product has been on the shelves for months.
The story may also feature a pet owner from Ohio that fed his dog a product that if purchased in Ohio, was manufactured at a plant not involved in the May 4 recall. This could be misleading to pet owners.
