Salmonella Threat Leads to Widespread Pet Food Recall
California Natural, Evo, Innova and HealthWise—four brands from Natura—are targeted.

By DC News Team | Posted: Mar 19, 2013, 8 a.m. EDT
Natura Pet Products on Monday voluntarily recalled selected lots of California Natural, Evo, Innova and HealthWise dry pet foods because of potential salmonella contamination.
The affected products are sold in bags through veterinary clinics, pet specialty retailers and online in the United States, Canada, Korea, Malaysia, Japan, Hong Kong and Costa Rica.

One Evo ferret food was recalled. The other identified foods are dog and cat formulas.

No salmonella-related illnesses were reported, noted Fremont, Neb.-based Natura, a division of Procter & Gamble. Symptoms of salmonella poisoning in pets include lethargy, diarrhea, fever and vomiting. People who handle contaminated pet products may exhibit similar symptoms.
The recalled foods, which bear specific UPC and lot codes, were produced in a single plant over two weeks in December. Routine testing by the Michigan Department of Agriculture showed the presence of salmonella in food collected from one store.

Pet owners are advised to discard the recalled food. Information about replacement food or a refund is available by calling 800-224-6123 from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. CDT Monday through Friday.

Also got this from the dog food advisor

“Proctor and Gamble has issued a voluntary market withdrawal of Iams Shakeables Turkey and Lamb Dog Treats with certain ‘Impacted Lot Numbers’ listed below. These treats are being voluntarily withdrawn due to potential for mold growth.”
