Has Kirkland Ever Been Recalled?

Yes, it has been recalled twice in recent years. In 2012, Diamond Pet Foods Inc., the manufacturer of Kirkland, issued a voluntary recall because of potential salmonella contamination. Kirkland was also affected by the massive 2007 recall that involved possible contamination with melamine.
