Diamond Pet Foods Salmonella Recall Class Action Lawsuit
By Sarah Pierce
Plaintiff Barbara Marciano is suing Diamond Pet Foods and Costco for negligence, among other things, relating to the death of her dog after he consumed Kirkland Signature Nature’s Domain dog food purchased at Costco on April 11, 2012. The brand was one of 11 Diamond Pet Foods brands recalled due to Salmonella starting on April 6, including:
Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul
Taste of the Wild

During the Diamond Pet Foods recall, the FDA made four observations related to unsanitary and unsafe conditions at a Diamond manufacturing plant in South Carolina, the class action lawsuit says. The FDA’s investigation revealed at least 14 people from nine states had been infected by the Salmonella outbreak after handling contaminated Diamond pet food.
This is not the first Diamond Pet Food class action lawsuit filed over the Salmonella outbreak. A New Jersey couple filed a class action lawsuit against Diamond and Costco in May after their infant son was sickened by tainted Kirkland dog food they purchased at Costco, causing him to spend three days in the hospital with gastrointestinal injuries.
Marciano is suing Diamond Pet Foods and Costco on behalf of all U.S. consumers who purchased the recalled Diamond pet food. She is seeking actual and consequential damages; treble damages; reimbursement, restitution and disgorgement; injunctive relief and more.
