Natura Pet Products expands dry petfood recall

Additional dry petfood lots recalled after cat food, cat treat test positive for Salmonella

Natura Pet Products is expanding its dry petfood recall because the petfood has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Sampling conducted by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Georgia Department of Agriculture confirmed the presence of Salmonella in additional lots of dry cat food and a cat pet treat. Therefore, Natura is expanding the dry petfood recall to include other products manufactured around the same time, although it says no related illnesses have been confirmed.

The recalled petfood products are sold through veterinary clinics and select pet specialty retailers online and in the US, Canada, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Malaysia and Costa Rica. The dry cat food expiration dates for this expanded recall range from 1/1/2014 to 3/24/2014. The dry cat treats have expiration dates from 7/1/2013 to 9/27/2013.

Consumers who purchased the recalled cat and dog food products should discard them. For more information or a product replacement, please contact Natura at +1.800.224.6123, Monday–Friday, 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. CST.
