Diamond Recalls Dog Food Due To Cross-Contamination

Diamond Pet Foods has issued a recall of its 40-pound bas of Nutra Nuggets Lamb Meal and Rice Formula due to a melamine contamination.

Diamond Pet Foods of Meta, Mo., recalled some of its 40-pound bags of Nutra Nuggets Lamb Meal and Rice Formula dry dog food because of cross-contamination with melamine-tainted rice-protein concentrate used to make other products at its Lathrop, Calif., facility.

Only bags with production codes NLR0404A2SL and NLR0404B2SL with a “best before” date of Oct. 9, 2008, are being recalled.

The contaminated product was distributed to retailers in Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia, Canada.

No other Nutra Nugget products are affected and no dog deaths have been reported at this time, Diamond said.

Products can be returned to the store where they were purchased for a full refund.

Diamond has also set up an information hotline for pet owners  at (866) 214-6945.

It is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. CDT.
