Natura Pet Products, acting on what the manufacturer called "an abundance of caution,” has voluntarily expanded a month-old recall to include all dry pet food and treats bearing expiration dates through March 24, 2014. See the original recall>>

Natura Recall

The recall, ordered because of potential salmonella contamination, does not involve any canned wet foods or biscuits.

The affected brands include California Natural, Evo, Innova and HealthWise dry food and treats for dogs and cats. Karma dry dog food was not part of a recall announced March 18 but was added to the list.

All UPCs and lot codes are part of the wider recall, Fremont, Neb.-based Natura reported April 19.

The affected products are sold through veterinary clinics and pet stores in the United States, Canada, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and Costa Rica as well as online.

The action followed testing conducted by the Michigan and Georgia departments of agriculture, which confirmed the presence of salmonella in additional foods and treats.

Symptoms of salmonella poisoning in pets include lethargy, diarrhea, fever and vomiting. People who handle contaminated pet products may exhibit similar symptoms.

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.

Additional consumer and retailer information is available a

I am skeptical about this food now, since P&G owns the company. Nevertheless, Nautra products was a trusted privately owned company and never had a RECALL! These bigger Co.'s will expland the marketing on the food and lessen the quality (even if they say they won't). When dog foods are in more stores, this means there are more mouths to feed and the quaility won't be the same. Already the food has gotten darker in color and seems like an Iams product because of the smell of it.

I believe my dogs should eat meats of the same quality as I do. That's why I prepare the food for them. Recently I discovered these Pets'N'Nature cat and dog treats which are made from human grade organ meats. My babies LOVE them!!! And what is the most important, the company claims that they use only USDA inspected meat of the same quality like the meat for humans that we buy in grocery stores.
