The pet food recall put in place by Natura Pets Products has been expanded to all products that were manufactured before June 10. The popular company for your pets favorite foods has put the voluntary recall in place after an FDA test at a single production facility showed positive results for Salmonella.
Natura has released a statement regarding the extended recall in which they apologized for disappointing customers.
“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,” the company said about their precautionary decision.
Natura Pets Products has also given customers a way to respond to the recall as well as the option to request a replacement voucher or ask for a refund. They also explained their concerns for the pets of customers and the reasoning behind the pet food recall.
“We made this decision in part due to a single positive Salmonella test by the FDA on product manufactured April 3. Normally, this would have resulted in retrieval of product manufactured over just a few days,” Natura added. “However, we are taking the additional precautionary measure to recall all products in the marketplace. Our first priority is the wellbeing of the pets we serve.”
The FDA released information about the Salmonella testing on their website in March, which notes that humans can also be affected by the products.
“Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products or any surfaces exposed to these products,” the FDA said on their website.
