Update: Pet-food recall
Natura Pet Products has expanded its recall of dry pet food because it could be contaminated with salmonella, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Sampling by the Michigan and Georgia state agricultural departments found salmonella in additional dry cat food and a cat pet treat. Natura is also recalling product made in the surrounding time frame. This affects dry foods only; no canned wet food is affected, according to the FDA.
The affected products are sold through veterinary clinics and pet specialty retailers nationwide and in Canada, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, Malaysia and Costa Rica, as well as online. The dry cat food expiration dates for this expanded recall range from 1/1/2014 to 3/24/2014. The dry cat treats have expiration dates from 7/1/13 to 9/27/13.
