Diamond Pet Food has recalled three varieties of food made at the South Carolina plant. Food distributed at this plant affects quite a few states from FL to MI.
According to our food guru, Diamond has stopped distribution of ALL food from this plant! Some of our people use Taste of the Wild, which is made by Diamond Pet Food. It is not on the recall list, but certainly worth mentioning.
I didn’t know if anyone feeds Chicken Soup For The Dog Lover’s Soul, but there is a recall for it (you may forward this email if you know someone who does):

I’ll keep watch as a manufacturer usually purchases ingredients from the same source to save $$$!
The following COULD be made at a Diamond manufacturing plant as Wellpet has several manufacturing sites:
