Taste Of The Wild Recall
0

17 posts in this topic

Diamond Company that makes Taste of the Wild pet food has a recall because of salmonella risk. Figured I would post this in case anyone else feeds their pets this brand. I'll have to go on a hunt for some that isn't recalled tomorrow since that is all Maggie eats. Wish me luck. The package codes recalled are at this link.

I will pass this on to friends who may use this brand.

I hope you find a replacement food for Maggie, hon!

I've been feeding it to my dog for the past few weeks - month? I tossed the bag a long time ago.

So far we haven't died. Hmmm....

I own a retail store in this business. The information ravenwoodglass posted a link to is accurate. The recall is confined to two of the three lines in Diamond's plant.

More information here, including about other brands made by Diamond.

Thanks Peter I was trying to find the other brands, as NC was listed in the distribution.

I did not see Iams. So, I guess we're ok.

What they said on our news tonight was that humans were getting sick from handling the food. I guess they weren't washing thier hands well after?

Still, wouldn't want to feed it to your pet.

Yup, I agree. I religiously wash my hands after feeding the Rudder Girl. But would not want her to eat any "tainted" food of whatever.

Since I dump my dog food in a can (and toss the bag) I'm going to have to clean the can. Sounds like soap and water should do it, let it dry in the sun...maybe a bleach rinse (sanitizer). http://www.fsis.usda.gov/factsheets/salmonella_questions_&_answers/

No one has symptoms. I guess I should alert the neighbors since their dog jumped the fence, came in the house, and ate bowls of the food.

Ugh. At least I'm at the bottom of the can... Would you believe it's the first time I bought it???

Geez, I'm going to have to mop. The whole first floor is his food mat.

Yes, I'm saying bad words.....

Procter & Gamble have their own manufacturing facilities and do not use contractors to make kibble.

We just finished off a bag and opened a new one last night. I got realy scared when I saw this post! :o

We lost a wonderful dog to the tainted with melamine food a few years ago. :angry:

I checked both bags and they are safe. :D

Doesn't Costco sell Taste of the Wild? I can't remember if it's labeled under another name though.

Some Kirkland Signature products are made by Diamond Pet Foods, but I do not believe the products are the same as TOTW. I don't have details, and the link I provided does not mention brands that Pet Valu does not sell.

It's definitely not Kirkland branded and I've only seen it at the Costco's here in CA. I looked it up and it's called "Nature's Domain" and reading Jess's link and it looks like it is TOTW: http://www.diamondpe...l.net/kirkland/

And I was going tomorrow to buy a bag!

FYI, according to Pet Club here in Tucson the affected facility was in the Carolina's - the food this Pet Club sells comes from CA and wasn't part of the recall.

So, that explains why we aren't dead (since the dog spreads it all over the house and I'd tossed the bag).

Only the plant in Gaston, SC, was affected, and only two production lines in that plant.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
