Natura Pet recalls EVO, Innova, HealthWise and California Natural dry foods for dogs, cats and ferrets

Natura Pet Products is voluntarily recalling specific lots of dry pet food because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Products being recalled include EVO, Innova, HealthWise and California Natural dry foods for dogs, cats and ferrets.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

These products were made in a single production facility during a two-week window in December 2012. Routine testing by the Michigan Department of Agriculture collected from a single retail location tested positive for the presence of Salmonella. As a precautionary measure, Natura is voluntarily recalling all products from this production window.

The affected products are sold in bags through veterinary clinics, select pet specialty retailers, and online in the United States, Canada, Korea, Malaysia, Japan, Hong Kong and Costa Rica. Product expiration dates range from 12/17/2013 to 1/2/2014. Product was distributed by Natura Pet Products between December 18, 2012, and March 15, 2013. No other dry food, canned food, biscuits, bars or treats are affected by this announcement.

A complete list of products and other information can be found at www.naturapet.com.

Consumers who have purchased the specific dry pet foods listed should discard them. For further information or a product replacement or refund, call Natura 800-224-6123.
