Natura Pet recalls dry cat & ferret food

Announcement

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 problem was discovered during the investigation of an ingredient inventory discrepancy. Only these five lots are affected. These lots were distributed through independent retailers in California, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Texas, Vermont 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. The company apologizes for the inconvenience caused by this incident and is taking immediate corrective action as a result of the investigation.
For more information, consumers can reach Natura Consumer Relations at 1-855-206-8297, Monday through Friday 9 am to 6 pm, EST or visit www.evopet.com.
