Natura Pet recalls all dry dog and cat foods

Natura Pet Products is recalling its dry foods for dogs and cats because of concerns they may be contaminated with salmonella bacteria.

The recall includes all dry pet food products with expiration dates prior to and including March 24, 2013. The brands include California Natural, EVO, Healthwise, Innova, and Karma.

Based in Fremont, Neb., Natura Pet is a maker of “natural” and “holistic” pet foods, according to a company statement.

The recall is an expansion of one that had been announced by the company last month, according to a Food and Drug Administration press release.

The affected products were sold through veterinary clinics and select pet specialty retailers throughout the United States and in Canada, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and Costa Rica. The products were also sold online.

No canned wet foods or biscuits are included in the recall.

Pets infected with salmonella can appear tired, and have diarrhea and vomiting. Some pets may not show obvious symptoms, but experience decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Pets can spread the bacteria to other animals, including humans.

Natura Pet said people who have purchased the products should discard them. If their pets have consumed the recalled product and are showing symptoms, they should contact their veterinarian.

I have been buying this product for a long time.
I have two dogs, 1golden and 1 lab/mix.
I save all URL’s and send in for rebate.
Lately, they don’t seem to want the dry food, so I have been mixing with wet fd. ,
peanut butter, they eat wet fd. but leave most of dry.????
My Lab, 7 mo. old may be showing signs of lethagic and some diarr., and I have been having some problems with my bowels lately.
I feed them their dry fd. mixed with peanut butter and mix in with my hands.
I read this can cause symptoms in adults also!???
I also have a 13 yr.old golden who is very slow, but I assumed it is old age?, maybe it is the food?
Just might be coincidence.

Number on latest bag is 92351722

Thank you,
Mitch Moos

I worked at a major pet store when they had the massive recall in March a few years back and if you have your receipt and the sku or upc code you can possibly check the company website. Also Petsmart and Petco,and most other stores, should have listings or have information on where to find out.

Good Luck
