Natura expands expiration dates in dry petfood recall

March 29 recall expanded to include all products with expiration dates through March 24, 2014

Natura Pet Products is again expanding its March 29 dry petfood recall because the products have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

The expanded recall now includes all dry cat food, dog food and pet treat products with expiration dates prior to and including March 24, 2014. The recall affects all sizes, UPCs and lot codes of the following Natura brands:

  • California Natural
  • EVO
  • Healthwise
  • Innova
  • Karma

A sampling conducted by the Michigan, USA, and Georgia, USA, Departments of Agriculture confirmed the presence of Salmonella in an additional sampling of dry petfood and a cat treat. As a precaution, the company expanded the recall to include all products made within the same timeframe. The affected products were sold through veterinary clinics and select pet specialty retailers in the US, Canada, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, and Costa Rica, as well as online.

Consumers who purchased the recalled products should discard them and contact Natura for a refund at +1.800.224.6123, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. CST.
