Natura Pet Products Being Recalled Due to Salmonella Risk

Cat Food Recall

Roughly a week ago, pet owners learned that Diamond Pet Foods issued a recall on some of their cat food products. The reason was a concern regarding these products for containing low levels of thiamine, which is extremely important for maintaining a normal nervous system function in cats.

The recall was limited, at first, to selected stores in Florida but expanded and now includes at least twenty-five states. If this was not bad enough, Natura Pet Foods recently announced they were voluntarily recalling several of their food brands; however, their reason was due to potential contamination of Salmonella and the products possibly affected is not just limited to cats, but dogs as well.

Several days ago, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced there was to be a recall concerning dry pet food. That recall came from Natura Pet Products and the focus was on specific lots of cat and dog food brands over the concern of salmonella contamination.

The discovery happened as the Michigan Department of Agriculture conducted a routine test and a sample that was obtained from one of their retail location sites tested positive for salmonella.

Natura’s recall concerns specific lots with regards to four different dry pet food brands. The bags involved are select bags of Health Wise, California Natural, Innova and EVO.

The pet food company determined that the recalled feline and canine edibles were made during a two week window of production in December 2012. Natura said that the affected bags were distributed between December 18th, 2012 – March 15th, 2013. The expiration dates range from December 17, 2013 – January 2, 2014.

The possible affected products were sold by the company to specialty pet retailers, veterinary clinics and through the internet around the world to places such as Costa Rica, the United States, Hong Kong, Canada, Japan, Korea and Malaysia.

The FDA said that, “Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers. Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.”

The pet food company urges any consumer who has an affected product to discard it. Also, if your pet has already consumed it and exhibits any of the symptoms stated above should immediately call their veterinarian.

Consumers can go to www.naturapet.com to see the full list of recalled products.

Natura can also be contacted at 800-224-6123 for product replacement or to find out further information.

As of now, there have been no illnesses reported as a result of the recall. Natura also said that no other biscuits, dry food, canned food, bars or treats have been affected.

  1. That’s why I always carefully choose the food for my dog! Smaller companies that make small batches are always the best choice. Maybe I spend a couple of dollars more on quality food, but I save 10 times more on veterinary visits. Recently I discovered Pets’N’Nature treats which are human grade, grass fed, and USDA inspected. My Casper goes crazy over them!
