TORONTO – Several natural pet food products sold in Canada and the U.S. have been recalled because they might be contaminated with salmonella.
Natura Pet Products issued the voluntary recall on specific lots of dry pet food after a single lot tested positive for salmonella in a routine test by the FDA.
The brands recalled include:
- Innova Dry dog and cat food and biscuits/bars/treats
- EVO dry dog, cat and ferret food and biscuits/bars/treats
- California Natural dry dog and cat foods and biscuits/bars/treats
- Healthwise dry dog and cat foods
- Karma dry dog foods
- Mother Nature biscuits/bars/treats
The recall affects all lot codes, all UPCs and all package sizes, with expiration dates before June 10, 2014.
The recall does not affect wet canned food.
The FDA warned that pets infected with salmonella may become lethargic and experience diarrhea and vomiting.
Pet owners may be at risk of salmonella poisoning from handling contaminated food.
Consumers who have purchased the recalled pet food should throw it out and can contact Natura for information on refunds.
