Here's another pet food recall alert. –Kim

P&G Natura Pet Voluntary Recall

Natura Pet has confirmed they are recalling at least 20 pet food products affecting dogs, cats, and ferrets. We heard a rumor that Natura was having a major recall due to possible salmonella contamination. After spending half an hour on hold with them, a friendly representative finally confirmed the recall and gave us the list. Why they don't have a readily available press release on their website or through the FDA, we don't know.

The products listed below may be contaminated with salmonella. These products appear to be distributed nationwide through Petco, various online retailers and local businesses. This is shaping up to be a large recall. Please spread the word. Like Healing Springs Animal Hospital on Facebook for the latest pet health & safety updates.

This is not the first negative news since Proctor & Gamble purchased Natura Pet in 2010. In 2011, Natura Pet settled a $2.15 million class action lawsuit for allegedly overstating the quality of their ingredients. The lawsuit was started in 2009, one year before Proctor & Gamble became involved with Natura Pet.

The recall affects the products named below that also have an expiration date between 12/17/13 and 1/2/14. If you have products possibly contaminated with salmonella, you should discontinue use. You can contact the company (800) 532-7261 between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. (CST) Monday – Friday.

The company now has an official press release on their Web site.
