Diamond Pet Foods Recall Sickens Infant

The salmonella-tainted pet food manufactured by Diamond Pet Foods has resulted in severe illness to a New Jersey infant.

A lawsuit was filed in federal court in New Jersey, after the infant contracted salmonella due to the pet food, alleging negligence, fraudulent misrepresentation, and other claims.

The recall, which began in April, now includes multiple varieties of the manufacturer’s products: Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul, Country Value, Diamond, Diamond Naturals, Premium Edge, Professional, 4Health, Apex, Kirkland Signature, Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain, Taste of the Wild and Canidae.

An investigation by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) noted that the facility failed on multiple counts to ensure product safety.

If your loved one or pet has been sickened or killed due to pet food, you can request a confidential consultation with an attorney to review the potential claim.
