    Then why would you not just tell the OP what you know about which foods are manufactured by Diamond or maybe mention the dog food that you do use like most of the posts to this thread have done. Rather, you advocate for a dog food manufacturer that has killed hundreds of dogs and has a terrible record of quality and safety issues, and then you say you don't even use the product.

    What the heck is the matter with you? Do you have a screw loose some where?

    If you like Diamond so much, why don't you eat some yourself? But don't feed it to your dog. You are a grown man and can decide on your own what to eat. Your dog cannot and is at your mercy. And for that I am sorry for your dog.

    Diamond is a piss poor excuse of a quality company. Don't know any other way to put it I've fed it and it was junk IMO. If it had killed one of my dogs I would sing to the high heavens about it myself. Anyone that defends them should be forced to feed it.

    Do YOU eat BEEF? Chicken? PORK? Lettuce? They have all been recalled at some point but I bet you still eat that stuff and they have killed THOUSANDS of PEOPLE.

    HUNDREDS of dogs, is actually a very small number of dogs that are eating "kibble".......while I understand you are very sensitive about it (apparently you lost a dob??) it would appear logic has exited the building.

    claimsadj I could not disagree more...

    They should be forced to eat it. Their poor dogs can't help who their owners are.

    You need to either take or repeat a course in logic.

    If your small child died after you fed them chicken produced by x-farm chicken, then over the next several years x-farm chicken was cited over and over for having contaminates in the chicken they produce, would you feed your next child chicken produced at x-farm?

    You may feed them chicken, but if you'd feed them x-farm chicken, then you are an idiot. It really is that simple.

    You don't believe that the corporation would make a "fall guy" and change their process? I think a lot of the information floating around was media hype and hype from anti's like PETA who just wanted to really point the finger and say, "told you all you animal owners are cruel for feeding animal based foods, see what you get?".

    Every single brand which makes more than two semi loads a year has had recalls. Not to mention, repeated recalls. Name one that hasn't.

    I feed TOTW and have never had any problems at all. The dogs look and act great. I am also very aware of the recalls, check routinely to see which company has the current recalls.

    Now you are repeating yourself. And you clearly don't have any idea what you are talking about.
    Schell and Kampeter, Inc. is Diamond Pet Foods, Inc. Are they going to make themselves the scapegoat?
    Change their process? They continue to produce toxic products year after year.
    Misinformation from the antis like PETA? The FDA ain't PETA. If you want to know what the FDA investigation said about Diamond, read the report. http://www.filadog.com/html%20docs/A...ive/g5811d.htm
    Name one that hasn't? I'll ask you as I did when you first posed the question... Name one that has as bad a record of safety as Diamond, and I'll name one that has not had a recall (which someone else has already done).


    As with many things in life, some will have their opinion and not change it regardless of the facts. If someone told these kind of folks that water is wet, they'd likely argue that it wasn't and then ask for a towell to dry off.

    Again, eat up Happy.
