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.

    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
    • So ok, I get the pain/bloating thing, but it still feels so crazy. But my god, I look 6 months preggers after dinner and 4 months the rest of the time. How long will this last?! I have not gained any weight but have to hide me belly now. I can hardly breath! Omg, that does take me back to pregnancy.  I had "acute marked focal duodenditis" a few weeks ago and an elevated DGP. the pain sometimes makes me seriously think I must be bleeding somewhere. It is actually worse then 3 weeks ago. Although many of the other glutening symptoms are finally vanishing. Even my mid and lower back is tender to touch. Sometimes it burns, aches or like someone is stabbing me in my side. My ribs hurt and everything is tender.  I am on protonix and fish oil. I have a prn for xanax which helps the pain (off market use for muscle relaxant).    I am fair skinned and notice a red under-the-skin discolored rash that comes and goes on my upper stomach. Sometimes it travels down one side. Not itchy. Almost like I can actually see the inflammation under my skin.  1) when will I stop looking knocked up?  2) Any other fair-skinned folks notice a purpleish-red rash on your bellies? It mostly goes away and comes back, which I tske to be a good sign.
