    Diamond Pet Foods today announced that it is expanding a voluntary recall to include batches of nine brands of dry pet food formulas manufactured between December 9, 2011 and April 7, 2012 due to potential Salmonella contamination.

    None of my cats eat TOTW, so I'm good...or any of the other foods listed.

    Yeah, I saw this too...They sent me an email.....unfortunately my bag was recalled; and my 8 yr old son and myself have been extremely ill.. Also, my Siamese cat was vomiting for two days..:( Shyla and everyone else in my house are ok so far.....but I was on the phone with Diamond yesterday for over an hour..I had to speak with their vet, and their medical doctor they have on staff. Took my son into the doc this morning, and looks like he's about done with his bout of this horribleness...but me....I still feel like crap:(

    Thanks Paige......it just a crazy thing...I just ordered a new bag of the TOTW and received it Tuesday, then Friday Saki was vomiting all over, and Saturday my son was so sick and had a super high fever.....Then I get an email Saturday night from Wag.com saying that they believe my bag was affected....nice. But I'm feeling better (aside from some stomach cramping) and he is too, Oh and Saki too.. :) At first I just thought maybe it was just a little stomach flu or something until I talked to the vet, and the doctor....then realized there was something more to it...But almost all better now, and I got refund right away too.....jeez what a weekend! :eek:

    Look at how many pet foods were recalled since 2009 due to salmonella contamination. http://www.avma.org/petfoodsafety/recalls/default.asp

    Why is this happening with increasing frequency. What needs to change in the pet food industry to ensure the safety of our furs? Gettin' kind of ridiculous.
