    The last one was more extensive and resulted in numerous dogs dying or ill from kidney failure. Diamond never admitted fault inspite of the huge recall, but paid a fairly substantial settlement. We had one of our springer spaniels die as a result of it.

    47sgs,

    What part of the country are you located and do you know from which of their plants your supplier buys Diamond product?

    Bob, I'm in central Oregon, and I don't remember which plant it was from, if I ever did know. The dog died, I think about 5 years ago, and I never pursued the issue, as nothing I did would make the dog any better. I'm sure they didn't contaminate it on purpose, so I left it alone. Once the aflatoxin contaminate is ingested, apparently liver and kidney issues are inevitable. From what I remember, it was the standard high protein Diamond dog food in a green sack. I think there are still some sites on the internet regarding it.
