Natura Pet Products voluntarily recalled certain batches of their Innova, Evo, California Natural and Healthwise pet foods after the FDA confirmed salmonella present in one of their products during a random sampling.
It’s the first recall in the company’s 21-year history.
“We take this extremely seriously, because your pets are like ours – they’re part of the family – and we aren’t taking any chances,” the company said in a letter to customers on their website Monday night.
The letter continued in part, “words cannot express our disappointment with this finding. … Unfortunately, salmonella and other contaminants pose a great challenge to the food industry, and no company is immune.”
The impacted products have an expiration window between Dec. 17, 2013 through Jan. 2, 2014. A detailed list of affected products can be found here.
There have been no reported animal or human health issues associated with these products. According to the company, they fully investigated and identified the cause of the incident.
Those with questions or concerns, can contact the company at 1-800-224-6123.
