Procter & Gamble (PG) expands pet food recall due to Salmonella threat

P&G expands Natura Pet Products recall

CINCINNATI - Procter & Gamble Co. expanded its recall of Natura Pet Products dog and cat food to include all products made at a Fremont, Nebraska production facility between January and March, 2013.

The expanded recall was announced late Friday . It includes products manufactured under the brand names Innova, EVO, California Natural, HealthWise and Karma. Details on specific lot numbers can be found on the Natura Pet Products site.

Previously, P&G announced a voluntary recall of products made during a two-week period in December after a Michigan inspector found evidence of Salmonella in a bag of randomly tested pet food. Friday’s announcement indicates Georgia inspectors also detected the presence of Salmonella. No pet or human illnesses have been confirmed to date.

“We assure you that we are extensively investigating, inspecting and taking all actions necessary to ensure that our products meet both your expectations and ours,” said the Natura notice to consumers.

This is the third product-quality problem announced since March 18 for P&G's pet care division, which has struggled to recover from an industry-wide recall in 2007.
