On May 7, 2012, Solid Gold Health Products for Pets announced announced a voluntary recall of two batches of its dry dog food after being notified by Diamond Pet Foods regarding the presence of Salmonella in Diamond Pet Foods’ South Carolina facility.
According to Solid Gold, no complaints have been reported. However, the company has decided to take this action as a precautionary measure.
Only the two foods with the specific Best Before dates and batch codes are affected by the recall.
The following products are being recalled:
- Solid Gold WolfKing Large Breed Adult Food, All sizes, Best before December 30, 2012, Batch code starting with SGL1201A32X
- Solid Gold WolfCub Large Breed Puppy Food, All Sizes, Best before December 30, 2012, Batch code starting with SGB1201A31X
Best by dates (lot codes) can be found on the back of the bag in the bottom right-hand corner of 33 lb, 28.5 lb and 15 lb bags and the bottom of the 4 lb bags.
No other Solid Gold products are affected.
The recall has now been confirmed in a news release posted by the Food and Drug Administration and updated on 5/8/2012.
What to Do?
Salmonella is serious business – for both you and your pet. So, if you can confirm your dog’s food is one of the products being recalled, stop feeding or handling it immediately.
If you’ve discarded the packaging (something we recommend you never do) – or you’re in any way in doubt – do not take chances. Be safe. Stop feeding or handling the product anyway.

This information was taken directly from the company’s Facebook announcement posted on May 7, 2012 at 8:34 PM ET. And we anticipate further details forthcoming once Solid Gold has consulted with the FDA.
