Regions impacted by the recall
Here’s how to determine if your variety has been affected by the recall, according to Diamond:
To determine if your pet food is recalled, consumers should check the production codes on the back of bags. Any production codes that have a number “2” or a “3” in the 9th or 10th digit and an “X” in the 11th digit in the production code should be discarded. The best before dates are December 9, 2012, through April 7, 2013.
The recall recently spread to Chicken Soup for the Soul Adult Light Formula dog food, as well as some varieties of Taste of the Wild. To determine if your batch is in the recall, use the same steps listed above.
