Last week, we posted about how Missouri-based Diamond Pet Foods was voluntarily recalling three types of dry dog food because of salmonella concerns. Unfortunately, after 14 humans in nine states came down with salmonella after coming in contact with dry food, that recall has been increased again, to include dog food under the Country Value, Diamond, Premium Edge, Professional, 4Health, and Taste of the Wild brands:
Reuters reported that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are investigating the outbreak. The infection is possibly from people touching the dog food and then touching their own food, cross-contamination with products that touched the tainted pet food or from direct contact from a dog that had a Salmonella infection.
