Diamond says it contained a dangerous fungus byproduct. The naturally-occurring chemical, which is found on corn, can cause serious liver damage in animals.

Recalls always piss me off, the reason being is that they do them way after the fact...they know they have tainted product out there but and know it will be consumed mostly before the word gets out...

Most things are naturally occuring...Bastards...
