Diamond Brand and Chicken Soup For the Pet Lover’s Soul Recalled

Due to American Nutrition’s recall, the following Diamond Pet Food can formulations are being recalled:

  • Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul Kitten Formula cans
  • Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul Puppy Formula cans
  • Diamond Lamb & Rice Formula cans

UPDATE: Currently, none of the ingredients for the above Diamond products list rice protein concentrate. Diamond’s homepage still claims “WHEAT GLUTEN OR RICE PROTEIN CONCENTRATE IS NOT USED in any of our dry, canned or treat products.”

Full Release and ingredients list after the jump.

(Thanks to many readers)
Diamond Pet Foods has announced it is withdrawing a limited number of canned products manufactured by American Nutrition. This action is limited to three specific canned products: Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul Kitten Formula 5.5 oz. cans, and Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul Puppy Formula 13 oz. cans, and Diamond Lamb & Rice Formula for Dogs 13 oz. cans.

Diamond Pet Foods has not received any indication of quality or safety issues, including pet illness, with the three withdrawn products. However, because American Nutrition informed the company that these three specific products may include rice protein concentrate, Diamond Pet Foods felt this action was necessary for the protection of its customers and their pets.

Customers with these products should stop feeding them immediately and return them to their retailer for a full refund.

    I did buy both Natural Balance and ChickenSoup at a pet speciality store. The only other brands I recall seeing there (beside the normal Nutro, Iams, etc) was Merrick and Solid Gold - both of which I’ve read things here of those being suspect too. I’m heading to another feed store today - it’s about 30 miles from me - if they don’t have anything different, I’m out of luck.

    I think it’s time to feed our pets home cooked food until we can be sure that manufactured pet food is safe.

    I am feeding my dog cooked chicken and Nature’s Variety Raw. He was throwing up this morning so, I am discontinuing the Merricks canned I was feeding him and the Innova Dry Treats and kibble I gave him as snacks.

    I have written to the vet, Dr. Blake, at thepetwhisperer.com about gemmotherapy that detoxes the kidneys. Here is my e-mail and his answer:

    Hi Dr Blake

    I have used Gemmotherapy for several years so am familiar with the products and the good they can do.

    What do you recommend for de-toxifying the kidneys in light of the present pet food recall?

    My two cats are taking Common Juniper 5 drops a day in their water, and Fig Tree (same) and Rowan Tree — the last is for icky eyes.

    This is a good choice but no more than 6 weeks at one time. OAO Dr Blake

    All I ask in return is you share my web site with three other people or lists and ask them to do the same

    MY ADDED COMMENTS:

    In other Itchmo blogs on the pet food recall, I have suggested using Common Juniper drops to detox the kidneys of animals suspected of being exposed to this bad food. Dr. Blake confirms this. I also confirmed this with my naturopath by simply asking, “what product is good for detoxifying the kidneys and is safe for cats?”

    My personal experience with gemmotherapy is extensive. I started taking gemmotherapy products in Sept 2003 after being diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. If anyone wants more information about my personal experience you may e-mail me directly at the above address.

    I do not sell Dolisos or Boiron products, nor do I receive any type of remuneration from them or the veterinarian above.

    I went into my local pet store, today, to purchase dry Chicken Soup, yes, I know, been cooking, but with six dogs and five cats, I cannot continue. I will add fresh cooked meat to their chicken soup.

    THE PET STORE STILL HAS ROYAL CANINE ON THE SHELF, HE ALSO DID NOT OF THE WHOLE CHICKEN SOUP CANNED RECALL.

    WHAT IS TO BE DONE, SHOULD I NOTIFY THE LOCAL BOARD OF HEALTH….

  5. sandi says:

    Two comments regarding two e mails.

    In California, if all the animals are altered, like here in New England, you can help out the southern and midwestern states.
    In new England we have been bringing up dogs for adoption for years. The reason is well, it is hard to say this delicately, so many puppy mills and people backwards getting puppies and dogs and cats.

    Now, as far as Taking Back America, please Read LEE IACOCCA’s rage.

    If people are going to post comments on this site and others, I believe it’s imperative that they have their information straight! The majority of the comments are adding misinformation to an already bad situation. Please take the time to visit the manufacturers websites, or call their 800 numbers for factual information - not the hesteria found here and on other sites. The FDA reported that 99% of pet foods are safe. The companies who had their formulations “altered” or “tampered with” by their co-packers were victims of fraud. I find it hard to believe that any company would intentionally want to harm your animals or their own pets. Only the products mentioned in any recall are affected - the rest are totally safe! This is guaranteed by the individual companies and the FDA. Become informed, before you pass on incorrect information that causes people concern, worry and hardship. Correct information is out there for anyone who cares enough to take the time to get the right information.

    Switched to Chicken Soup brand cans and kibble when recall began. Both dogs became lethargic and had diarrhea. Stopped the food, dogs were immediately better, and tried it again a week later; same results. I alerted the company who then sent me a message about how to feed dogs!!!! Recall of this brand started within the week, but not the products I was using.
    My dogs are used to a natural diet and are supplemented with cans/kibble mix. Therefore, they may be more sensitive to any tainted product.

    My little Yorkies are getting homemade meals. Right after starting a new bag of DRY Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover’s Soul, my smallest dog started vomiting. It may be conincidence, but I don’t trust them to tell the truth. They did say on their website there had been no reports of sickness in regard to the dry food. Guess they forgot about my contact and they sent an email saying they were submitting it to their vet.

  9. heyjude says:

    johnypaycut, haven’t checked in for a while so late getting your message. Thank you for your concern, truly appreciated. I was giving them the dry food, but doesn’t matter either way, they won’t touch it, maybe they know more than I do, huh?
