Natura Pet Products – Huge Dog and Cat Food Recall

Shame, Natura Pet Products, was once highly renowned for their green practices and for providing quality dog and cat food.  In fact, they were the winner of my Natural Cat Food Throwdown a few years back.

Then, success got to them. It was announced in May 2010 that Proctor & Gamble was purchasing them.  As a result, I promptly revoked the winning title that I had awarded Natura Pet Products for environmental stewardship.

Unfortunatly, it didn’t take too long for a fall in quality to occur antidepressants under P&G’s cost-driven leadership.  The FDA found salmonella contamination in one of their products and now ALL of their pet food, from dogs, cats and ferrets, is being voluntarily recalled.  This includes the following brands:

  • Innova
  • EVO
  • California Natural
  • Healthwise
  • Karma
  • Mother Nature

I guess you can’t buy your way into pretending to care about Mother Nature or food quality.  Karma’s a bitch, huh?
