Release All Documents Related To Diamond Pet Foods' 2012 Recalls

    1. Petition by

Diamond Pet Foods is a US based manufacturer of dog and cat food, distributed worldwide.

Pet owners often choose Diamond brand products because they use higher quality ingredients than other pet foods at a similar cost. Diamond manufactures under its own name and for other brands, including Natural Balance and Costo's Kirkland Signature.

During the period of April 2012 through May 2012, several recalls were issued for pet food made at Diamond's Gaston, South Carolina plant. Food tested positive for Salmonella, and made people and possibly pets sick.

Diamond has long advertised its quality assurance program. Consumers deserve to know:

  How did this program fail?

  When did Diamond learn of this failure?

  Did Diamond react responsibly or withhold information?

  How does Diamond track reports of adverse reactions to its food?

Tell Diamond, companies which use Diamond to manufacture their foods, including Natural Balance, and retailers, including Petco and Petsmart, to make all documents public immediately. Consumers should not have to wait years for court cases to provide the information.

Documents released must include plant inspection reports, food test results, correspondence between Diamond and public officials including the FDA and CDC, and a timeline of notifications to Diamond and Diamond's response.

If Diamond refuses to provide this information, Natural Balance, Wellness, Costco, and others should terminate contracts. Petco and Petsmart should refuse to carry products.

      I believe we need to do more to protect our pets from food recalls and I'd like to be the best possibility informed consumer when making choices about where to spend my pet food dollars.

      I have bought two bags of Taste of the Wild so far and I will never purchase anything else made by Diamond. My dog has had off and on vomiting and diarrhea. I thought at first that I should modify her treats because she might be getting too much protein. Nope. She's just sick. It is 5:30 in the morning and I am wide awake with a very sick, unhappy Pitbull.

      Pet food manufacturers are allowed to lie about the ingredients in the products they produce. Too many of them use ingredients that are deemed unfit for human consumption as well as horrible items such as euthanized pets from shelters. This food is killing pets with cancer, organ failure/disease and poor health. Consumers should always have the complete truth about the products and the ingredients in those products that they spend their money on. It's only right.

      NO kibble or canned food is healthy for pets. You'll only get good health and long life for your pets by feeding a raw diet. Search online and learn the facts before giving your beloved animal more deadly products.

      The recalled food from Diamond started before April 2012. The Kirkland Lamb and Rice made all my dogs sick and killed one back starting in Feb. Filed an incident report with Costco and Diamond. They don't care and tried to cover it up. Thank you for putting together this petition.
