FREMONT, NE. (WHNT) – Natura Pet Products is recalling a number of pet food brands due to a case of Salmonella.

WHNT News 19 reported on April 23 about an expanded recall issued by Natura Pet Products on two earlier recalls on March 18 and 29.

This recall is voluntary and includes all Innova, California Natural, EVO, Healthwise, Mother Nature and Karma branded dry pet food and biscuit/bar/treat products with expiration dates prior to June 10, 2014.

The company said it made this decision in part due to a single positive Salmonella test by the FDA on product manufactured April 3.

“Normally, this would have resulted in retrieval of product manufactured over just a few days. However, we are taking the additional precautionary measure to recall all products in the marketplace. Our first priority is the well-being of the pets we serve,” the company said in a statement.

“Natura will always focus on high-quality ingredients, product safety and innovation in pet nutrition,” the company said. “We remain committed to making products you can trust.”
