I know its not funny when I am deathly afraid for my girls and my baby puppies.
Are you serious? I thought that should KILL bacteria. I am puzzled More info on this? I am annoyed, as I switched to TOTW about 5 months ago, from a raw diet. I would prefer to feed raw, but my current schedule makes it very difficult as my dogs have to be boarded on a regular basis for the time being (annoyed with that too ) And now for the big question... is there a good quality kibble I can go to, that I can TRUST!!?? I really don't care what it costs for the most part. UHG

This is crazy frustrating. I'm going to dig into this tomorrow, as I have 2 dogs on Nat Bal Venison, 1 dog on TOTW Salmon and another dog on 4Health Salmon. All foods under the recall???????????????? AGH!!!!!!! I'm gonna shoot myself. I can't change them all!

I went to buy a new bag of food the other day and I asked the lady at our local feed store (not a chain) about Diamonds recalls because I was concerned. She told me that she talked with the manufacturer and that they don't get their ToTW from the SC plant. This was before the voluntary recall, but now that I checked the list, my bag seems to not be affected. Thankfully.

We have been through **** and back with Jake (14 Weeks Old) with chronic diarrhea and he was finally doing well with us slowly transitioning him to this food. He's finally gaining weight again and I'm terrified another food change will set us back.

The problem is they produce so many brands of food ... It doesn't leave very many options.
Do yourself and that new precious little life a favor and feed him The Honest Kitchen brand foods which are ALL HUMAN GRADE! And I'll just bet cha....no diarrhea! Don't be shocked by the price of the box. 8 pounds of dehydrated Honest Kitchen makes 40 pounds!

While my state was not on the list (Washington) I am worried. Just because my state isn't on the list doesn't mean [to me] that we can't get the tainted food here via other stores, etc

Guess it is time to find something different for my two as well-what sucks the most about this, is that I have to get a new bag of food tomorrow because this one is almost gone-bottom of the bag. So I HAVE to buy more TOTW this time and some new brand to get them switched over.

I have been considering making a change anyway because I have noticed differences in the kibble- like the bag we are just finishing, has two different colors of kibble in it. Two years ago the kibble was always a nice dark rich brown. Now it just seems unstable.

I agree, the kibble has been inconsistent, different color poop also

I'm seriously considering switching Bunny from Chicken Soup to Fromm. The only reason why I haven't is she has an unknown food allergy and the Chicken Soup she's fine with and the price point is good. Fromm is $80 a bag here in Canada but I don't want my girl getting sick. I think she tried Fromm before and was fine on it.

I switched my two from the TOTW High Prairie after Freyja got extremely sick this Christmas and our veterinarian linked it to her food. Christmas morning trips to the clinic are always fun. She had fever, hives, vomiting, diarrhea, physically couldn't stand for more than 5 minutes, etc. We returned the bag to the company with the report of her illness and treatment, and were given a full refund. Since then, both dogs have refused to eat the High Prairie formula. After trying a variety of foods, we now have them on the TOTW lamb formula. I hate to have to switch them again as it's a pain getting something they both like. I guess it's time to try out Orijen.

[QUOTE=selzer;2474899]Well,
No, it's just the Diamond Naturals.

Uhm, no it's not, its a list of them.

Well I have nothing on that.

There has actually been 3 separate recalls!
It is REALLY long (about 3 pages) so I didn't know if I could put it on the blog.
PLEASE BE AWARE SOME ARE RECALLS, SOME ARE VOLUNTARY.

Canidade, Natural Balance, Wellness Large Breed Puppy (certain sizes), Taste of The Wild, 8 Kirkland products, Diamond & Diamond Naturals, Chicken Soup for the Pet Loverís Soul, Country Value, Premium Edge, Professional Pet Food, 4Health
The only dog food that is 100% HUMAN GRADE are The Honest Kitchen brands. It is dehydrated food, so don't let the price scare ya! 8 pounds makes approximately 40 pounds.
