Pet Food Recall 2013: Natura Pet issues new dry pet food recall due to Salmonella scareBy Angel Cuala on Jun 19, 2013 in Animals, Food, Health, United States •
Natura Pet Products is recalling again specific lots of dry pet food due to the possibility of being contaminated with Salmonella. This new pet food recall was issued this Tuesday, June 18, 2013, two months after the same pet food company issued a similar recall. The complete list of products is available below.
According to a press release at the official website of U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that day, Natura Pet is recalling the brand names Innova, EVO, California Natural, HealthWise, Karma, and Mother Nature products with expiration dates prior to June 10, 2014. The recall did not mention any canned wet food included.
As noted in the report, the latest Natura Pet recall was issued after the FDA has confirmed that a single lot was tested positive for Salmonella contamination. The affected products were packaged in a single production facility, and were sold in bags via veterinary clinics, selected pet specialty retailers, and online in the United States and Canada.
With this, Natura Pet issued an official statement addressing the sad news, saying they are taking the additional precautionary measure regarding this latest recall. The company noted that the recalled products were manufactured on April 3, 2013, and have already implemented additional testing products for finished products.
“We are truly sorry. We know this news disappoints you; we are disappointed too. Natura will always focus on high-quality ingredients, product safety, and innovation in pet nutrition. We remain committed to making products you can trust.” A statement reads at NaturaPet.com that day.
Natura Pet also posted a guide (pdf file) on their official website on how affected customers can request a replacement voucher or refund. The FDA emphasized the clients who have bought the recalled dry pet foods should immediately dispose them properly.
