Update (04/12/12):  Diamond Pet Food is now SUSPENDING deliveries (NOT a recall)
 of ALL dry - dog & cat - products made at their South Carolina (SC) plant!

The following are also ALL made by Diamond (although not necessarily at the SC plant):

-Kirkland Dog Food (sold at Costco)
-Taste of the Wild*
-Solid Gold Health Products for Pets*
-Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance Pet Foods
-Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul
-4Health (sold at Tractor Supply Co)
-NutraGold ? (have not yet verified where manuf.)

*Per a Taste of the Wild representative >>>

 "If your bag of food has an X, M or O in the Production Code, then it was made in the SC Plant. The suspension of production is to do a TOTAL CLEANUP, and to make sure that the issue (recall) was only with the Diamond Naturals Lamb Meal & Rice."


* Per Solid Gold's Facebook page >>>  

"Diamond Pet Foods manufactures four Solid Gold® dry dog foods: WolfKing, WolfCub, Just a Wee Bit, and Hund-n-Flocken. The remainder of our dry dog foods and both dry cat foods are made at Crosswinds Pet Foods in Kansas.

All WolfKing, WolfCub, Just a Wee Bit, and Hund-n-Flocken sold in the United States are made in the Diamond Pet Foods plant in Meta, Missouri. 

The Diamond Pet Food plant in Gaston, South Carolina makes a very small amount of WolfKing, WolfCub, and Just a Wee Bit for export purposes. There are no safety concerns with these Solid Gold® foods made in Gaston and they are not part of the limited voluntary recall of Diamond Pet Foods."


*Per a direct response we received from a Wellness pet food representative >>>

"Diamond no longer produces any Wellness products. At Wellness, programs, guidelines and specifications have been carefully put in place to protect the nutritional integrity of our natural pet food. We are currently in the process of bringing the majority of our Wellness dry diet production into our own manufacturing plant in Mishawaka, IN. For each of our Wellness recipes, we source the highest quality ingredients in order to provide you and your pets with the best quality available."





The above was originally posted as an "update" to the Diamond recall posted below.  However, to clarify that this is NOT a recall, but rather a suspension of deliveries, we felt it should have it's own posting.
