March 19, 2013 -- Natura Pet Products is voluntarily recalling some of its dry pet food because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

So far, no Salmonella-related illnesses have been reported, though contamination has been found. Salmonella can sicken animals eating the products. There is also risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after touching products or urfaces exposed to these products, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

The affected products were sold from Dec.18, 2012 to March 15, 2013 in bags through veterinary clinics, select pet specialty retailers, and online in the United States and other countries.

Product expiration dates range from 12/17/2013 - 1/2/2014.

No other dry food, canned food, biscuits, bars or treats are affected by this announcement.
