The Natura Pet food recall has been expanded again, after the company admitted that it may pose danger to animals and human due to a possible salmonella risk. This is the second expansion of the pet food recall by Natura Pet, after it issued a recall a month ago, and expanded it on March 29, 2013.

According to a press release at NaturaPet.com this Friday, April 19, 2013, Natura Pet announced that the latest expanded recall now includes all Natura dry dog, cat, and ferret food treats with expiration dates of on or before March 24, 2014. The earlier recalls were coordinated with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
As noted in the report, the brands of the affected pet food products are Innova, EVO, California Natural, HealthWise, and Karma Products. The company emphasized that Natura canned products and Mother Nature biscuits are not included in the recall.
“We are sorry for the disruption, but we simply want to ensure that every product meets our highest quality standards. Your pet’s health and safety are our #1 priority.” A statement reads at NaturaPet.com. The first pet food recall was issued last March 18, which did not mention of any report of related illness.
“We are taking all actions necessary to ensure that our products meet both your expectations and ours. Our Fremont plant has been focused on quality enhancements and is now shipping new product to stores that will be on shelves soon.” Natura Pet added.
Consumers who have bought the recalled dry pet foods are being strongly advised to discard them. For more information about this expanded pet food recall and for product replacement, contact Natura toll-free at 800-224-6123. (Monday – Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:30 PM CST), or visit NaturaPet.com.
