The expanded recall now includes all dry pet food products and treats with expiration dates prior to and including March 24, 2014. An entire list of the impacted products can be found here.
Sampling conducted by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and the Georgia Department of Agriculture confirmed the presence of salmonella in additional dry pet food and a cat pet treat.
“In an abundance of caution, Natura is also recalling product made in the surrounding timeframe,” the company said in a press release on their website. “This action affects dry pet foods and treats only; no canned wet food or biscuits are affected by this announcement.”
The affected products are sold through veterinary clinics and select pet specialty retailers nationwide and in Canada, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and Costa Rica, as well as online.
Those who have purchased these pet foods should discard them. For additional information, consumers may visit www.naturapet.com. For a product replacement or refund call Natura toll-free at 800-224-6123. (Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. CST).
