UPDATE 3/30: New lot numbers added and contact info for product refund/replacement
Natura Pet has expanded a voluntary recall on limited lots of HealthWise Dog, Puppy, Cat and Kitten food due to potential Salmonella contamination.
Natura Pet began recalling certain lots after it was alerted to a single case of Salmonella in a product from a different brand, but that was part of the same production window as the affected lots of Healthwise Dog and Puppy food. The recall was then expanded on March 29 to include the following Healthwise pet food lots, including newly added cat and kitten formulas.

Salmonella can affect both animals eating the product and humans handling the pet product.
If you or your pet had contact with the recalled product, you are advised to watch for symptoms that may develop. Common symptoms associated with Salmonella poisoning include diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, or abdominal pain. If you, your pet, or a family member are experiencing these symptoms, you are urged to contact a medical professional.
At the time of this release there have been no reported illnesses associated with this recall.
