Pet Food Recall: Limited Natura Dry Cat Food

Natura has issued a voluntary recall of 5 lots of dry cat food and dry ferret food due to vitamin insufficiency.  The official FDA report and list of specific products  is below.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – November 24, 2014 – Fremont, Nebraska – Natura Pet Products has initiated a limited, voluntary recall of certain dry cat and dry ferret food lots produced in its Fremont, Nebraska facility. Due to a formulation error, these products contain insufficient levels of vitamins and excess minerals.

Pets can become ill if they lack vitamins for prolonged periods. Early signs of vitamin deficiency may include decreased appetite, lethargy, vomiting and weight loss. If treated promptly, vitamin deficiency can be successfully reversed. The presence of excess minerals in these products poses no health concern.

There have been no reports of animal health concerns to date, but these lots do not meet our quality standards and should not be consumed by pets. No other EVO® products or lots are affected by this issue.

The affected product and lot codes are:

PRODUCT SIZE UPC EXP DATE LOT CODE
EVO® Grain Free Turkey & Chicken Formula dry cat & kitten food 15.4 LB 5148 541400 02/19/2016 4300A700D2

EVO® Grain Free Ferret Food 6.6 LB 5148 542101 02/19/2016 4300A700D3

The problem was discovered during the investigation of an ingredient inventory discrepancy. Only these 5 lots are affected. These lots were distributed through independent retailers in CA, GA, MI, MN, NV, PA, TX, VT and Canada, as well as online. No other Natura products are affected.

Retailers have been contacted and are instructed to immediately withdraw these lots from store shelves. Consumers who purchased the product should discontinue feeding the product immediately and discard as normal household waste. We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this incident. We are taking immediate corrective action as a result of our investigation.

HALO’S HEALTHY WEIGHT CHALLENGE—THE FINAL WEIGH-IN—SOMETHING TO BE THANKFUL FOR!

Faith2Faith has completed her Halo Healthy Weight Challenge and her story is one of success! Faith started the Challenge weighing 68 pounds. In just 12 weeks she has lost 7 pounds for a final weigh-in of 61 pounds!

Way to go Faith!

But Faith is not done yet. Her owner has been given instructions to continue weighing her every 2 weeks and working with her veterinarian to determine when Faith has reached her ideal weight. At that time, Faith will be able to eat a few more calories each day to maintain her new svelte frame.

For dogs—like Faith—who have previously struggled with being overweight, we do recommend continuing them on a calorie-controlled diet like the Halo Healthy Weight for the best management of their weight in the long run.

Faith was the second participant enrolled in the Halo Healthy Weight Challenge on THE EXPERT VET of the RADIO PET LADY NETWORK. Faith was successful in losing weight with a specially designed meal plan of Halo Healthy Weight natural dog food and extra fruits and veggies.
