Diamond Pet Food has discovered aflatoxin in a product manufactured at
our facility in Gaston, South Carolina. Aflatoxin is a naturally
occurring toxic chemical by-product from the growth of the fungus
Aspergillus flavus, on corn and other crops.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have notified our distributors and
recommended they hold the sale of all Diamond Pet Food products
formulated with corn that were produced out of our Gaston facility (see
complete list below). Please note that products manufactured at our
facilities in Meta, Missouri and Lathrop, California are not affected.
The Gaston facility date codes are unique from other Diamond facility
codes in that either the eleventh or twelfth character in the date code
will be a capital "G" (in reference to Gaston). The range of date codes being reviewed are "Best By 01-March-07" through Best By "11-June-07". Diamond's quantitative analysis records substantiate that Diamond's corn shipments were definitively clear of aflatoxin after December 10. As such, "Best By 11-June-07" date codes or later are not affected by this notice.
States serviced by our Gaston facility include Alabama, Connecticut,
Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky (eastern), Main, Maryland,
Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North
Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee,
West Virginia, Vermont, and Virginia.
We are rapidly analyzing retained samples of all products produced in
Gaston so we can isolate specific lot numbers impacted and provide this
information to our distributors, retailers and customers as quickly as
Meanwhile, if your pet is showing any symptoms of illness, including
sluggishness or lethargy combined with a reluctance to eat, yellowish
tint to the eyes and/or gums, and severe or bloody diarrhea, please
consult your veterinarian immediately.
Product quality and customer satisfaction are important to us. We pledge to keep you updated as new developments occur.
