Some California Natural, Evo, Innova, HealthWise Pet Foods Recalled

Natura has first recall in the company’s history of 21 years.

Selected bags of Evo Red Meat Formula and Innova Weight Management Adult Cat Food are among the foods recalled by Natura Pet Products.

The recall was the first in the company's 21-year history, Natura reported.

The affected products are sold in bags through veterinary clinics, pet specialty retailers and online in the United States, Canada, Korea, Malaysia, Japan, Hong Kong and Costa Rica.

One Evo ferret food was recalled. The other identified foods were dog and cat formulas.

No salmonella-related illnesses were reported, noted Fremont, Neb.-based Natura, a division of Procter & Gamble. Symptoms of salmonella poisoning in pets include lethargy, diarrhea, fever and vomiting. People who handle contaminated pet products may exhibit similar symptoms.

The recalled foods, which bear specific UPC and lot codes, were produced in a single plant over two weeks in December. Routine testing by the Michigan Department of Agriculture showed the presence of salmonella in food collected from one store.

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.

A complete list of the recalled foods is available at www.naturapet.com/recall.
