Have You Or Your Dog Been Poisoned By Diamond Pet Foods? by ZainabMartins(f): 12:39pm On Jun 16, 2012

There is a lot on the web about the Diamond Pet food recalls, but what do you do if you suspect food poisoning.

In Lagos, a lot of Nigerians buy dog food and put the security guard or dog handler in charge of feeding our dogs. In such cases, and there has been a few cases, the owner of the house was told that his security guard had fallen sick. Two days later, the meguard was still not back and the owner was getting frustrated. The owner does not suspect that the cause of the meguard's illness could be simply handling contaminated dog food. In the meantime, his house help is not feeling well either. Anyway this case is still ongoing, I suspect that the origin of the problem could be the dog food, but it could also be something else. Tests are ongoing. What is for sure though: The dog owner switched to Diamond Pet Food because of a 32% discount promotion he saw on Facebook. Until he switched he had had no problems.

When food is cheap, think twice before buying it.

Advice to Consumers and Families with Pets


The Center for Disease Control offers this advice to pet owners:


Consumers should check their homes for recalled dog food products and discard them promptly. Consumers with questions about recalled dog food may contact Diamond Pet Foods at telephone number (800) 442-0402 or visit www.diamondpetrecall.com.

Follow the tips listed on Salmonella from Dry Pet Food and Treats to help prevent an infection with Salmonella from handling dry pet food and treats.

People who think they might have become ill after contact with dry pet food or with an animal that has eaten dry pet food should consult their health care providers. Infants, older adults, and persons with impaired immune systems are more likely than others to develop severe illness.

People who think their animal might have become ill after eating dry pet food should consult their veterinary-care providers.

Read Additional Information for Pet Owners to learn the signs and symptoms of salmonellosis in dogs and cats, and to understand how to deal with possible Salmonella illness in your pet.

Also, be aware that dogs may be infected with Salmonella - and may shed the bacteria in their stool - without showing any outward symptoms of illness. If your pet has consumed a Diamond Pet Foods dry dog food, be especially careful to wash your hands after handling it, and supervise closely any interaction between children and your pet.
