You’ve probably never heard of Diamond Pet Foods.

But they’re negligence is endangering the lives of dogs all over the world.

They manufacture dog foods all over the United States.

You probably recognize the brand names.

Why Is Diamond Pet Foods Producing Dangerous Pet Foods?

Diamond introduced Diamond Naturals in 2006. These products contain no by-products, corn, or wheat. They also manufacture Bright Bites brand dental treats, Taste of the Wild brand pet food, and Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul brand dog and cat food.
They also manufacture under contract, for other companies, at least some of the pet foods sold under these brands or business names.
Canidae Pet Food
Costco’s Kirkland Signature
Solid Gold Health Products for Pets
Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance Pet Foods
Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain (Available only at Costco)
Taste of the Wild Pet Foods
Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul
4Health (Available only at Tractor Supply Company)
NutraGold Super Premium Holistic Formulas

Now if you’ve been following the Dogington Post, we’ve been reporting that Diamond Pet Foods can’t get its act together.

We’ve had recalls.

Additional recalls.

Corrections of recalls.

Right now they are concerned about salmonella poisoning to dogs.

But no one cares about us.

The news stations report “there’s no danger to humans.”

I ask you: Do Gary Schell and Richard Kampter who head Diamond Pet Foods even CARE about dogs?

I’ll ask you another question: Where’s the government in all this?

Imagine there was a baby food manufacturer who couldn’t get its act together.

How long do you think the government would let them go on before moving in and closing down the plant?

Notice they produce dog food for Costco under their Kirkland brand.

Remember Costco? They STILL sell the chicken jerky from China that kills dogs.

All we do is give love and this is what we get back in return.


Until they bring in a dog advocate and better quality control I pronounce their foods “not fit for a dog.”

Don’t throw your products out!

Take them back to the place of purchase.

And as of right now, I declare a boycott of Diamond Pet Foods and their products.

Let’s send a message to Diamond Pet Foods that we love our dogs and we won’t treat them with any less care than our children.

Our dogs are members of our families.

    Where is this pet food being manufactured? Is it China. I do not buy anything made in China for my dogs. That includes pet food, dog snacks and dog toys…

      Diamond Pet food is manufactured right here in the USA. Their headquarters are in Meta,Missouri,USA. And @Ralph what are you going to do, boycott everything that has a recall? They at least did the right thing to voluntarily put out a recall as soon as they knew that something was wrong. If you want to boycott things for making a small mistake and then voluntarily putting out a recall then shame on you. I know bigger companies that have put out stuff with something wrong in it that never put out a recall until a few people died and the FDA told them to recall the items. Shame on all of you who believe that Ralph’s thoughts are correct. I’ve lived in the town where Diamond’s headquarters are all my life and they honestly do care about the pets the serve, the people who buy their products, their workers and the community they are based out of.

  2. Where can I find a complete list of Brands manufactured by Diamond foods? Is this some sort of secret, I have searched and only find a couple of brands but I know they manufacture many brands other than their own and Kirkland.

    I buy Diamond Lamb & Rice at the Co-op still. I had two Golden Retrievers who lived to be 16 plus eating Diamond lamb and rice dog food the last 6 years of their lives. It was necessary for one of them as he had allergies to most other dog foods.

    During all this time, Diamond had one recall that affected my dog’s food.

    The Co-op called my home and requested I bring the Bag of Diamond I had just purchased back and it would be replaced. They said Diamond had discovered a possible contamination, knew where they had shipped the food and did the right thing by notifying merchants and also a press release requesting return of food in bags with stated numbers on them.
    I checked the Bag of food I have now and it has numbers printed on it (part gone when I opened the bag) so they do make an attempt to be able to trace and identify when the dog food packaged and where it is shipped.
    I have heard worse about Cat Food that is just plain killing them.

    This is my point.

    Not enough is being done to make dog food safe.

    I fed my dog canidae, until she had intermittent vomitting sessions and then became deathly sick. Bloody stools, fever, no appetite, all of the classic salmonella symptoms. At this time she then refused to eat the Canidae. After many vet trips and nursing her back to health, we changed foods and miraculously her good health returned 100%. She also never gets ill. I knew something was wrong with Canidae and like any business looking to show good faith, their limited recall only scratches the surface. This happened 8 months ago and I read articles of other dog owners having the same experience at the time. The good folks at Canidae can now say, “We took preemptive measures to protect our consumers with the voluntary recall”….. BS!!!!!!! It was happening then and is still happening. I also read on Canidae’s voluntary recall statements how they were not aware of any dogs becoming ill from their food. BS on that too!!!

    Jamie, these are new and updated recalls.

    They are also correcting incorrect information with the public.

    How many chances do they need to get it right?

    Diamond has vountarily had this recall in place since April 6th. They have continued to keep the public informed. I don’t know what you want them to do? We have all the garbage foods and treats produced by Nestle, Purina, DelMonte WHY are you not boycotting them. I think it says little for this forum that you would call for a boycott of a company that has acted responsibly. They did not wait for the FDA to force a recall they did it as soon as they knew they had a problom. Shame on you Raplh! Your time would be better spent getting the China treats off the shelves!
