If you’re like me you purchase what you believe is a healthy dog food and take it for granted that it is safe for you to feed your pets…but lately that belief is being challenged, as it seems that we’re reading about new pet food recalls every week. News outlets are reporting bacterial outbreaks and more at companies both large and small. What’s a conscientious pet parent to do? How can we feel secure with our dog food purchases? If there’s any upside to these recalls, it’s that pet food manufacturers are putting more safeguards in place in an effort to reassure consumers.
Diamond Naturals knows how you feel and takes your concerns seriously. At Diamond Pet Foods, nothing is more important than the safety of their products. By continuously improving performance with the latest advancements in science and technology, Diamond Pet Foods has developed a comprehensive food safety system.
Every aspect of the manufacturing process at Diamond Pet Foods is tested and monitored. For example in each of the company’s facilities, over 1,300 microbiological tests are conducted every week, including finished product tests, in-process tests and sanitation-verification tests. No product manufactured by Diamond Pet Foods is released into distribution without adhering to the strict standards of the company’s Test and Hold Program, in which product tests are conducted by a certified, independent laboratory. Hourly samples are collected and tested for every product produced. Every sample is kept for a time equal to the guaranteed shelf life of the product, typically 12 months.
On their website Diamond Pet Foods answers the question “How can I be sure of the quality of the Diamond Natural products?”
Diamond Pet Foods works very hard to provide your pet with the highest quality, safest products available. Our151 checks program is one way that we accomplish this. All incoming ingredients are run through a battery of tests, specific for that particular ingredient. These tests are run in the high-tech laboratory that is on site. If any of the test results are questionable, the ingredient is not accepted into the plant. During the production of the food, additional tests are run to ensure that the product is being made to meets its nutritional levels and that there are not any contaminants that were somehow missed during the ingredient testing. All of these results are stored in a computer system for each batch of food. High-tech quality control is the best way to ensure product quality and safety.
Reading all of this, including the details of the “151 Checks Program”, I believe Diamond Naturals is as committed to my pet’s health and safety as I am. I feel that this is one grain-free food I can feed with confidence.
