Natura is issuing a massive pet food recall after the FDA found salmonella in one of their products. They are recalling pet food from all of their product lines, including food for dogs, cats, and ferrets.

While a single positive test for a contaminant usually leads to a limited recall, just covering a few days' worth of pet food production, Natura has chosen to recall everything produced more than a week ago, when they implemented additional product testing procedures. 

"We are taking the additional precautionary measure," the employees announced in a press release, because "our first priority is the wellbeing of the pets we serve."

If your animal is showing symptoms of stomach distress, you should seek immediate treatment for your pet.

The recall includes all Innova, California Natural, EVO, Healthwise, Mother Nature, and Karma branded dry pet food and biscuit treats with expiration dates prior to June 10, 2014. The expiration date appears in different places on the various products. To find out where to look for your pet food's expiration date, see the illustrated guide on the Natura website.

If you own any of the recalled pet food, dispose of it immediately, but not before you clip key information off the bag. To get a full refund, you need to fill out this form and mail it to Natura with the UPC label, expiration date, and product code cut from the pet food bag.

For further information, you can contact the company online or by calling (800) 224-6123.
