Important Recall of 5 Brand Name Pet Foods


Notice:

All California Natural, EVO, Healthwise, Innova and Karma dry dog and cat foods have been recalled, all lot codes and all treat varieties by these names.


Can pet food is not affected at this time.

The maker of these pet foods is Natura Pet Products  which is sold all over the world and online.

Recent testing confirmed the presence of Salmonella in dry pet food and treats.

Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from
handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed
their hands after having contact with the 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 signs 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 these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.
