Natura Pet Expands Recall Of Dry Pet Foods Due To Possible Health Risk

Natura Pet Products said Friday that it is voluntarily expanding its recall of dry pet food because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

However, no Salmonella-related illnesses have been confirmed to date, the company said.

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.

According to the company, sampling conducted by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and the Georgia Department of Agriculture confirmed the presence of Salmonella in additional dry cat food and a cat pet treat. In an abundance of caution, Natura is also recalling product made in the surrounding timeframe.

The affected products are sold through veterinary clinics and select pet specialty retailers across the United States and in Canada, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Malaysia and Costa Rica, as well as online. The dry cat food expiration dates for the expanded recall range from 1/1/2014 to 3/24/2014. The dry cat treats have expiration dates from 7/1/13 to 9/27/13.
