OK-Pet Food Express is in California, so it would seem that their stock would come from the Diamond, Lathrop CA plant.  This seems to be a whole new issue.  Sad

A couple of hours ago they issued the Diamond Premium Edge recall on cat food sold in Georgia (17 other states too)

The rep at Premium Edge says this is no new recall...I asked why two dates now since it was a 12 minute issue on one day and she kept saying this is not new...and when I asked if it had been expanded to more states she said that they never posted what states were affected..She said FDA issues a press release after an investigation...but I told her that on 10/20 the FDA only had one production date and now the Premium site has two....she had no answer for me...

if anyone else wants to see if they get a better answer that makes sense.. Tongue

Carol,

That makes sense in the "Alice in Wonderland" world of the pet food industry - where topsy turvy explanations seek to ameliorate their out of control manufacturing processes.

We know that Diamond has long history of manufacturing problems, so buyer beware.

According to the AP today, .....

a small quote from the article.

...The company has confirmed 21 cases of thiamine deficiency in New York and Pennsylvania.
The recalled bags of food were distributed in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida....

And I just now got this from my FDA alert email.
>>Diamond Pet Foods Announces Recall of Premium Edge Adult Cat and Premium Edge Hairball Cat Food
Tue, 01 Dec 2009 09:11:00 -0600


On September 23, Diamond Pet Foods issued a voluntary recall for Premium Edge Finicky Adult Cat and Premium Edge Hairball cat because they have the potential to produce Thiamine Deficiency. Today’s announcement provides additional information from the company’s posted announcement of September 23 when the initial recall information was provided. <<

I guess you all know even more about all this.

The AP picked it up because of the FDA release most likely...so now I bet the medias are picking this up like it is brand new...at least I think it is from the Sept / Oct recall although things seemed to have changed..like two dates of production...4 different BB dates...18 states... Roll Eyes

Yes, when AP picked up the story today, this made my local news for the first time, too.  I pity those who were feeding the food since September! Angry

I read this first at Therese's site from this am "Jen" from 10/27 (one above my comment)
 
http://petsitusa.com/blog/?p=2527&cpage=1#comment-315596

and then I find this from yesterday (Jen Kruba)

http://blogs.catster.com/the-cats-meow-a-cat-and-kitten-blog/cat-food-recall-premium-edge-in-rochester-area/2009/10/15/

It looks like she is saying she tried to get someone to listen to her in August..including FDA...and she is in PA not Rochester.... Huh


Remember this poster tried to warn FDA and Diamond in August... Angry

And to hear they say now 21 cats affected reminds me of the "16" affected with Menu Foods... Angry

I remember only the "12-minute window", suggesting that it would be one BB date?

Here's a link to a copy of the last known text of the September recall notice, which we blogged:
