POTENTIAL SALMONELLA RISK
On Monday, April 2, MDARD had its first confirmed positive for salmonella in a dog food sample. PPPMD and the Laboratory Division immediately began working with the manufacturer, retailers, FDA and its state feed counterparts to remove the product from sale and share laboratory results. This resulted in a recall of the dog food by Diamond Pet Foods on the afternoon or Friday, April 6.
The product, Diamond Naturals Lamb Meal & Rice, was distributed to customers located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia, who may have further distributed the product to other states, through pet food channels.
