Natura Pet Products expanded their voluntary food recall late Friday over salmonella concerns.
“In the course of further examination, additional products have tested positive for the presence of salmonella,” a statement posted on their website said. “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 in the Jan-Mar, 2013 timeframe.”
The recall includes pet food sold under their Innova, EVO, California Naturals and HealthWise brands. A link to the recalled items may be found on the recall page of their website, or by clicking on the names of each brand.
“Your pets’ health and safety is our #1 priority.” the latest statement read. “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.”
Natura first voluntarily recalled batches of their pet food March 18 after the FDA confirmed salmonella present in one of their products during a random sampling.
It was the first recall in the company’s 21-year history.
