Diamond settles in dog food recall

Diamond Pet Foods (Meta, Mo.) will compensate people whose dogs were injured as a result of eating food product recalled by the company in 2005.

The $3.1
million legal settlement
applies to people who purchased recalled Diamond
Brand and Country Value Brand Pet Food products in 2005, who did not return the
foods for a refund and who live in one of 23 states: Alabama, Delaware, District
of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts,
Michigan, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina,
Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia,
and West Virginia.

Diamond Pet Foods recalled the dog
foods in December 2005 after they were found to contain toxins that injured
dogs. The lawsuit alleged that many consumers have not received refunds for the
recalled food. Consumers may receive compensation if they can show that the
recalled food they purchased was not returned for a refund. Consumers also may
receive compensation for any veterinary expenses associated with testing and
treating dogs that ate the contaminated pet food.

Consumers who believe
they are entitled to receive compensation must submit a valid claim by April 15.
