Natura Expands Recall of Dry Food, Treats

Posted: April 22, 2013, 1:50 p.m. EDT

Natura Pet Products, acting on what the manufacturer called "an abundance of caution,” has voluntarily expanded a month-old recall to include all dry pet food and treats bearing expiration dates through March 24, 2014.

The recall, ordered because of potential salmonella contamination, does not involve any canned wet foods or biscuits.

 Natura products
Evo and Innova are among five brands affected by the Natura Pet Products recall.
The affected brands include California Natural, Evo, Innova and HealthWise dry food and treats for dogs and cats. Karma dry dog food was not part of a recall announced March 18 but was added to the list.

All UPCs and lot codes are part of the wider recall, Fremont, Neb.-based Natura reported April 19.

The affected products are sold through veterinary clinics and pet stores in the United States, Canada, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and Costa Rica as well as online.

The action followed testing conducted by the Michigan and Georgia departments of agriculture, which confirmed the presence of salmonella in additional foods and treats.

Symptoms of salmonella poisoning in pets include lethargy, diarrhea, fever and vomiting. People who handle contaminated pet products may exhibit similar symptoms.

Pet owners are advised to discard the recalled food. Information about replacement food or a refund is available by calling 800-224-6123 from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. CDT Monday through Friday.

Additional consumer and retailer information is available at www.naturapet.com/recall.
