A Pet food recall has been put into place by Nabraska based Natura pet products. The recall is voluntary and follows the discovery that it could be contaminated with salmonella.
NaturaPet.com posted the pet food recall message on their website stating: “We have some sad news to share. We are announcing today a voluntary recall of all Innova, California Natural, EVO, Healthwise, Mother Nature and Karma branded dry pet food and biscuit/bar/treat products with expiration dates prior to June 10, 2014.”
Customers who have bought these products are advised not to give them to their pets and to return them to the store they bought them from immediately. It was reported that the recalls apply to products from a single production facility following an FDA inspection back in April.
Back in April, Natura pets issued a recall of some of its products and that now, “out of an abundance of caution,” they have issued another voluntary pet food recall. The company said that it was recalling all products that were produced until the new measures were put in place on June 10.
In a statement the company said: “We are truly sorry. We know this news disappoints you; we are disappointed too. Natura will always focus on high-quality ingredients, product safety and innovation in pet nutrition. We remain committed to making products you can trust.”
Salmonella could harm not only the pets who consume it but also the people who handle the tainted pet food. The FDA recommends that people wash their hands thoroughly after handling pet food as well as any surfaces that the food comes into contact with.
