Two Canadians are among the almost 50 people in North America who have contracted salmonella from dry dog food — that’s according to the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta. Ga.

The outbreak was linked to a single Diamond Pet Foods production facility in South Carolina.

The company recalled a number of brands, including Kirkland Signature, which was sold at Costco. Also included in the recall are: Country Value, Premium Edge, Professional and Diamond Naturals.

Diamond issued the first of several recalls of pet food on April 6.

The Diamond brand names are: Country Value, Diamond, Premium Edge, Professional, 4Health, Naturals and Taste of the Wild.

Other brands co-produced at the plant include: Natural Balance, Kirkland Signature/Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain, Apex Pet Foods, Canidae Pet Foods and one type of Wellness Complete Health puppy food.

Consumers should check their homes for recalled pet food and discard them.

People can contract the rare strain of salmonella just by handling the food, or even through contact with animals who have eaten the contaminated food.
