ATLANTA -- Diamond Pet Foods says it is voluntarily recalling its Diamond Naturals Lamb Meal & Rice dry dog food because the product may be contaminated with salmonella.
A news release from the company Friday says no illnesses have been reported and no other Diamond products are affected.
People who handle the pet food could become infected with salmonella.

Healthy people infected with salmonella should monitor themselves for the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever.
Pets with salmonella may have decreased appetite fever and abdominal pain.
The product was distributed to customers in 12 states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia. It is possible those customers may have distributed it to other states.
Consumers who have purchased the Diamond Naturals Lamb & Rice with the specific production and "Best Before" codes should discontinue feeding the product and discard it.
Diamond Pet Foods apologizes for any inconvenience this recall may have caused. For further information or to obtain a product refund, please call us at 800-442-0402 or visit www.diamondpet.com.
