The FDA knew and had reports going back 10 years that informed them of the risk of arsenic in the chicken feed. Point is who can you trust? Remember we were then eating these chickens, yum a little arsenic to spice things up! Look at what the FDA allows in OUR food, it's very difficult to find food that does not contain a KNOWN poison. You have to do your own investigation. I don't know the in and outs of diamonds recall and who they paid and didn't and how they responded to the issue but to trust their governing body the FDA is almost like chasing your tail. Their is good and bad and unfortunately it's our job to find the good in the bad. Dog food is no different than human food, you can feed Pepsi a McDonald's type diet, or feed Pepsi a quality nutritious diet. I have yet to find a commercial dog food that is what I would deem a "quality diet." The RTF is a great resource for stuff like this that can effect us all!
    Just skimmed this and will go back and read more thoroughly....
    The FDA, like the FAA, is not only charged with safety, but also promoting the industry. A clear conflict of interest.

    You must have looked at the 'Naturals' line as they have plenty of those ingredients in other products they make.

    If you do buy Diamond Naturals, that doesn't mean your safe. You can get cross contamination within the plant due to their poor manufacturing standards. I won't ever trust them again.

    No, Kennel where I live feeds Diamond and has for 25+ years. He's never had an issue and is pretty loyal to the brand. I know some folks who make their own raw with great success.

    Well once your dog dies, tell me how great Diamond is then.

    I personally have been feeding Nature's Domain since it became available. Dogs never died and the food I fed has never been on the recall list. What do you feed?
