Diamond Pet Food Recalled AGAIN!
Diamond pet food has recalled cat food due to problems reported in cats in the Rochester, NY area.
Diamond Pet Foods has withdrawn from distribution the following date codes of
Premium Edge Finicky Adult Cat & Premium Edge Hairball cat:
RAF0501A22X 18lb. RAF0501A2X 6 lb.
RAH0501A22X 18 lb.
The calls from pet owners or veterinarians regarding this issue have been centered in the Rochester, NY area. All retail outlets shipped the above lots were contacted, asking them to pull the product from the store shelves. The retailers were also asked to contact their customers via email or telephone requesting them to check the date code of the food. However, if you or anyone you know has these date codes of Premium Edge cat food, please return them to your retailer.
Symptoms displayed by an affected cat will be neurological in nature. Any cats fed these date codes that display these symptoms should be immediately taken to a veterinarian.
Product testing proved no contaminants were discovered in the cat food; however the cat foods were deficient in thiamine. Diamond tracked the vitamin premix lot number that was utilized in these particular cat foods and have performed testing on another lot of Premium Edge cat food that used the same vitamin premix, and it was not deficient in thiamine. No other neurological signs have been reported on any other product manufactured by Diamond Pet Foods
Did you get that folks? Pet foods are cooked/processed at such high temperatures that there are NO vitamins, NO life giving enzymes, etc. left in it! Manufactures have to add back in synthetic vitamin premix before sealing the bags or cans! Is it worth the risk to feed pet food to our special animal companion? Are we doing the very best for them? I think not!
I hope this, just one more recall will wake up those still thinking that pet food is what pets were designed to eat… What happened to common sense and being pro-active in our thinking and approach to caring for the pets we claim to love as much as our own children? Please find out what cats and dogs were designed to eat as carnivores. Let’s get up off our lazy bottoms and quit now – allowing a multi-billion dollar industry only interesed in its own pocket book (face it, they could care less about our pet’s health)to dictate what to feed our pets when they in reality know NOTHING of true carnivore nutriton.

Our 3 cats were affected, we actually were the first to call Premium Edge on 8/31/09. I adamently told them I watched our cats deteriorate with this new bag we opened, our cats were big healthy cats, Dr. Rettinmaiur would not look into more b/c our cats went outside. Our one cat died, the other almost died and the third had the least symptoms but he had lost weight and was sleeping a lot. I even called the FDA so sorry to anyone who lost their cat, I tried my best to warn everyone- I am glad it all finally came out and now everyone does believe me. It is sad they donâ€™t take into consideration that a pet owner knows their pets best, and would believe what they have to say!
