RECALL - Natura expands recall again

Natura Pet is expanding their previous recall to include ALL Innova, California Natural, EVO, Healthwise, Mother Nature and Karma branded dry pet food and biscuit/bar/treat products that have expiration dates on or before June 10, 2014.

They are voluntarily recalling their dry pet foods and treats because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

FDA Press Release can be found HERE.

  • Innova
  • 
EVO
  • 
California Natural
  • 
HealthWise
  • 
Karma
  • Mother Nature

HERE is the form to fill out if your product was affected for a replacement.





Note: it is unlikely that a healthy dog would become sick by having Salmonella in pet food, however, it would be a problem for puppies or those dogs with a compromised immune system. It becomes a problem for people when they touch the food and do not wash their hands after feeding their pet.

Also, if you store your pet's food in a container, please take the food out if affected and wash it out with a bleach water solution to kill any bacteria that may be in the container.  I highly suggest cleaning out the container between every bag of food during normal use.







IMPORTANT: Signs of Salmonella in Pets
Pets with Salmonella infections may have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If left untreated, pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.


IMPORTANT: Signs of Salmonella in People
Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.
