|i wouldn't be so quick to bash any dog food right now.
Late last night, Natura Pet announced a dramatic expansion of its pet food recall. This recall affects dogs, cats, and ferrets. This is a large recall affecting 56 products distributed through retailers throughout the U.S., Canada, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Malaysia, and Cost Rica. Please share to spread the word. Follow the links below for a complete list of product pictures, lot numbers, and date ranges.
We predicted there would be an expansion of this recall on March 18. It is important that pet owners have a source for this type of information. Like Healing Springs on Facebook to receive updates on pet product safety in your newsfeed.
These products are being recalled due to a possible salmonella contamination. The presence of salmonella in some of these products has been confirmed by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and the Georgia Department of Agriculture. While the FDA is stating there are no confirmed illnesses reported to date, people who have posted here suspect several incidents of serious illness in their pets related to this contamination. Salmonella should be taken seriously, and suspect products should never be fed to a pet. While salmonella is common and easily managed through proper safe handling procedures, salmonella can seriously sicken pets. Humans can be infected by handling contaminated products. Twenty percent of humans infected with salmonella have to be hospitalized.
Proctor & Gamble purchased Natura Pet in 2010. Many have speculated on these posts that this recall, the first for Natura pet in 21 years, suggests Proctor & Gamble has negatively affected the quality standards of the company. However, Natura Pet was having some trouble at least since 2009. In 2009, a class action lawsuit was started against Natura Pet for allegedly overstating the quality of their ingredients. In 2011, Natura Pet settled the lawsuit for $2.15 million.
