Stop the insanity!!!!! My question is why is this info just now coming out? These companies have known about the issues for weeks if not months.
I'm still not feeding my Chicken Soup canned (made by Diamond) even though they tell me it is safe. I am still feeding the dry Chicken Soup though so this announcements makes me worried.
PLease change the title of this to Nutra Nuggets Lamb & Rice made by Diamond was recalled.....I almost stroked out.

You know what I really don't get is WHY pet foods are still being recalled almost two months after the original recall! It seems like about once a week something new is annouced. :-\ WHY is it taking so long for these to come to light? ???
