Natura recall expanded to include all dry pet food products

Natura Pet Products has voluntarily recalled all dry pet food and treats that expire by March 24, 2014, expanding a recall initiated in March because the food may be contaminated with salmonella bacteria. Agriculture officials in Georgia and Michigan identified salmonella in some of the products included in the recall. “Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products,” the company said.

Natura Pet Products, a unit of the Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE:PG), announced Friday it is expanding its voluntary recall to encompass all dry pet food products and treats with expiration dates before and including March 24, 2014. The company announced its initial recall March 29.

Natura said the products could be contaminated with salmonella. “Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products,” the company said.

Five brands are subject to the recall: California Natural, EVO, Healthwise, Innova and Karma. “This action affects dry pet foods and treats only; no canned wet food or biscuits are affected by this announcement,” Natura said.

“Your pet’s health and safety are our #1 priority. We are taking all actions necessary to ensure that our products meet both your expectations and ours,” the company said on its online site. Referring to the recall, it added, “We are sorry for the disruption, but we simply want to ensure that every product meets our highest quality standards.”

The Georgia and Michigan departments of agriculture both confirmed samples of the recalled listed products did contain traces of salmonella.

    Have been attempting to contact the company to provide us info regarding replacement or what instructions do I need to follow up with.

    Contact hours are incorrect

    Have a bag of treats found from. Previous cat which ended up dying Easter 2012. Had been feeding her (PixieBob) Innova senior formula cat food and the Innova cat treats. Was not aware of the recall. Wasn’t until I was searching for a place to purchase products that I found the recall. After talking with the place she was acquired from stated that what described post death, and info from the recall that the products could have very very been responsible for the death of the beloved pet.

    • We’re very sorry about your cat, but I’m not sure what you are asking us to do. We do not report food/treat issues and we are not the company who made the food/treat. I also doubt that the company responsible will replace product from 2012.
