Thanks for the post, Gabriel :)

It's good that the company recalled the product and is now trying to act responsibly, but a shame that it won't be posted within the 1st 3 pages of newspapers.
So the more the word can get out there, the better. (y)

Happy New Year to you :)

Shame on those workers for not testing like they should have! :mad: I guess they just thought of cats and dogs as animals...not family members!

Diamond Pet Foods Acknowledge Failure

Wednesday, February 01, 2006 1:16 a.m. ET

By JOHN C. DRAKE Associated Press Writer

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- The maker of contaminated pet food that caused the deaths of dozens of dogs nationwide acknowledged Tuesday that workers at its South Carolina plant failed to follow internal testing procedures to ensure its products were safe.

Diamond Pet Foods made the acknowledgment after the federal Food and Drug Administration released a report showing the company has no record of test results for 12 shipments of corn in September and October, when grain tainted with the deadly fungus aflatoxin slipped into the plant.

"The company had stringent guidelines in place to test incoming shipments of corn for aflatoxin exposure," the Diamond Pet Foods said in a statement. "It was apparent by the FDA report that those guidelines were not followed. The company has taken the necessary actions to prevent these oversights from happening in the future."

The company since has narrowed the batches of potentially toxic dog food to two varieties: Diamond Maintenance Dog and Diamond Premium Adult Dog with "Best By" dates of April 3, 4, 5 and 11, 2007.

I think it's very interesting that articles pertaining to this news story seem to have been removed from so many news sites so quickly. For such an important story, it's amazing.

Any conspiracy theories?

At least one site had a explaination for the removal:
The content is copyrighted by the Associated Press, which requires ClickOnDetroit.com to delete its stories two weeks after they are originally posted.
Don't you just love how copyrights are more important than your safety?
 

Forward 🎂

It's my birthday!
