RECALL: Natura Pet Food Recalls at Least Four of its Brands

On March 19 the Dancing Dog Blog posted regarding a Natura products pet food recall. As of today Natura has announced that the original pet food recall has been expanded to include more products that may be contaminated with Salmonella:
California Natural
and Karma

The FDA lists the symptoms of Salmonella as follows:
“Pets with Salmonella infections may have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If left untreated, pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. 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.
Individuals handling dry pet food can become infected with Salmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with surfaces exposed to this product. People who believe they may have been exposed to Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever.

Natura announcement from their website:
“On March 18, 2013, we informed you of a voluntary recall on select Natura products. In the course of further examination, additional products have tested positive for the presence of salmonella. All of these products were made on a single manufacturing line. As an additional safety measure, we are broadening our voluntary recall to include all dry dog and cat food products made on this single manufacturing line [Ed. bolded] in the Jan-Mar, 2013 timeframe.

Your pets’ health and safety is our #1 priority. We assure you that we are extensively investigating, inspecting and taking all actions necessary to ensure that our products meet both your expectations and ours.
Please see below for details on all affected products. If you have a product included on this list and would like a refund or replacement, please follow the instructions below. For additional inquiries, contact us at or (800) 224-6123.
