Diamond Pet Foods issued its third dog food recall in the past month due to salmonella contamination in a product manufactured at the company’s Gaston, S.C., facility, which recently ceased production.

The latest recall includes the following sizes of the Meta, Mo.-based company’s Diamond Puppy Formula dry dog food:
