EVO, Innova, California Natural and HealthWise Dog Food Recall

Here we go again. It may seem lately that all I post are pet food recalls. I post them as I receive them. 99% of the time it is because of Salmonella bacteria and it doesn’t matter how healthy or natural the food is. I have received pet food recall alert emails for some time, but it is out of control lately. I think this has a lot of pet parents rethinking their store-bought kibbles or raw food diet. Homemade seems the way to go these days!

March 18, 2013Natura Pet Products has announced it is recalling four of its most popular brands of dry dog, cat and ferret foods due to possible contamination with Salmonella bacteria.

Salmonella can sicken animals that eat these products and humans are at risk for salmonella poisoning from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the pet products or any surfaces exposed to these products.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever.

Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms.

Consumers exhibiting these symptoms after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain.

Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has any of these signs, please contact your veterinarian.

Brands being recalled include:
