Four Cat Food Brands Recalled

Salmonella threat leads to widespread cat and dog food recall.

Natura Pet Products on Monday voluntarily recalled selected lots of California Natural, Evo, Innova and HealthWise dry dog and cat 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 cats and dogs include lethargy, diarrhea, fever and vomiting. People who handle contaminated pet products may exhibit similar symptoms.

The recalled dog and cat 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.

Here are the affected cat products:

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.
