Concerns over Salmonella prompts pet food recall

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -

Concerns over possible Salmonella contamination has prompted The Natura Pet Products company to recall specific lots of dry pet food for dogs, cats and ferrets.

The contamination was discovered during a routine test conducted by the Michigan Department of Agriculture. The affected products were sold in bags through veterinary clinics, pet specialty retailers and online in the United States, Canada, Korea, Malaysia, Japan, Hong Kong and Costa Rica.

No Salmonella related illnesses have been reported but the infection can affect animals eating the products and there is a risk it can also spread to humans handling contaminated pet products.

Product expiration dates range from 12/17/2013 through 1/2/2014. The product was distributed by Natura Pet Products between December 18, 2012 through March 15, 2013.

Consumers who have purchased the specific dry pet foods listed should discard them. For further information or a product replacement or refund call Natura toll-free at 800-224-6123. (Monday -Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:30 PM CST)
