Massive nationwide cat and dog food recall after tests find salmonella

NEW YORK - Many pet owners are just learning about a large pet food recall first issued by the government in June.

Natura Pet Products issued the 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.

If you have any Natura Pet Food products, throw them out immediately.

To get a full refund, you need to cut the UPC label, expiration date, and product code from the pet food bag and mail it to the company.

Here is a complete list of products from the FDA recall:

-- Dogswell Recall --

During routine testing of Dogswell products, the New York State Department of Agriculture & Markets (NYSDAM) discovered that a sample of Dogswell Happy Hips Chicken Breast Jerky contained trace amounts of an antibiotic residue that has not been approved for use in the United States.

"It is important to note that this antibiotic is accepted for use in other countries (including the European Union), and there is no evidence that products containing trace amounts of this antibiotic pose a health risk for pets or humans," Dogswell told its customers.

Since we were notified by the NYSDAM the week of July 22, we have made the decision to voluntarily withdraw Chicken Breast and Duck Breast jerky under the Breathies, Happy Heart, Happy Hips, Mellow Mut, Shape Up, Veggie Life, Vitality, and Vitakitty brands that are labeled with a “Best Before” date of January 28th, 2015 or any earlier date.

The vast majority of these products were distributed before March 1 of this year. No other products are affected, the company said.
