Salmonella Threat Leads to Widespread Pet Food Recall

California Natural, Evo, Innova and HealthWise—four brands from Natura—are targeted.

By | Posted: Mar 19, 2013, 8 a.m. EDT

Natura Pet Products on Monday voluntarily recalled selected lots of California Natural, Evo, Innova and HealthWise dry pet foods because of potential salmonella contamination.

The affected products are sold in bags through veterinary clinics, pet specialty retailers and online in the United States, Canada, Korea, Malaysia, Japan, Hong Kong and Costa Rica.

One Evo ferret food was recalled. The other identified foods are dog and cat formulas.

No salmonella-related illnesses were reported, noted Fremont, Neb.-based Natura, a division of Procter & Gamble. Symptoms of salmonella poisoning in pets include lethargy, diarrhea, fever and vomiting. People who handle contaminated pet products may exhibit similar symptoms.
The recalled foods, which bear specific UPC and lot codes, were produced in a single plant over two weeks in December. Routine testing by the Michigan Department of Agriculture showed the presence of salmonella in food collected from one store.

Pet owners are advised to discard the recalled food. Information about replacement food or a refund is available by calling 800-224-6123 from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. CDT Monday through Friday.

I've heard of 4 deaths of dogs due to this dog food. Why do they keep saying "no health related issues"?

My dog was on kibbles and bits, within a week of her on a brand new bag she was in kidney failure. We're waiting to see if that one shows up on the recall list too. $1000 later, new brand of food and a ton of medicines and we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

My dogs were on EVO weigh management , what a line of bull . A pet retailer told me about FROMM dog food regular food and surprise they lost some weight. Big Corprations take over and their only concern is money in their pockets

I only buy dog food or treats with "Made in the USA" on the label. Never buy dog food made in China. I guess we should now avoid dog food made in California.
