Diamond Halts Pet Food Production At S.C. Plant



Published:

Diamond Pet Foods of Meta, Mo., suspended all production at its Gaston, S.C., plant, following a dog food recall last week due to salmonella concerns, the company reported today.

Diamond ceased production at the plant on April 8, 2012, two days after it recalled several lots of Diamond Naturals Lamb & Rice dry dog food due to potential contamination with salmonella. No other products are at risk of being contaminated, according to the company.

Brands manufactured at the Gaston facility include:

• Diamond
• Taste of the Wild
• Premium Edge
• Professional
• Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul
• Country Value

The company did not provide a specific timeframe on when it would resume production, but said it will not do so until the Gaston plant meets the “highest possible standards of quality.”
