Natura Pet Recalls 5 Lots of Dry Cat and Dry Ferret Food due to Vitamin Insufficiency


Jason Taylor at 513-622-1017
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:
EVO® Grain Free Turkey & Chicken Formula dry cat & kitten food15.4 LB5148 54140002/19/20164300A700D2
EVO® Grain Free Turkey & Chicken Formula dry cat & kitten food2.2 LB5148 54140202/20/20164301A700A4

EVO® Grain Free Ferret Food6.6 LB5148 54210102/19/20164300A700D3
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.
For more information, consumers can reach Natura Consumer Relations at 1-855-206-8297, Monday through Friday 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM EST or visit www.evopet.com.

Kender's Holiday Posting

Hi Everyone and welcome to the crazy , insane, busy HOLIDAY season.   We just wanted to take a minute to remind everyone if you are getting a kitty from us - at no time during the week of Thanksgiving , nor Christmas will we place a new family member. It just isnt in their best interests or yours.

Let the new kitty have a peaceful meeting and new home transition.  Without parties, extra friends, lots of potentially open doors , electrical things , shiny baubles, dangerous edibles and more.  We are happy to help you by sharing pictures and stories , but save the homecoming for a calmer more  relaxed setting.

And on that note - we do have 1 Spayed Adult female, 2 years old silver tabby & white available. And 1 blue tabby & white baby male kitten available to reserve. He is 3 months and just a sweet fun boy! I will take a deposit on him to hold him until he is 4 months and is neutered.

Tommy is this handsome lads name just a real Mr Personality!

Our retired adult, a pretty lady , already spayed just waiting for the "right" home.

One More Family Update

I am a bit tardy in sharing these pictures Greg sent to us last month , so I hope he can forgive my lateness. He wrote - Alice,
I don't think we've ever sent you any pics of the boy you helped us pick out for my sister and her daughters up in Montana.  As you can see from the pics, my nieces love him more than life itself.  With the cooler weather up North his coat gets really long and beautiful in the fall and winter.  He's a happy guy.

Would like to remind a few - our kitties go out on contracts for a reason - if you have purchased, been given etc a kitty without our knowledge and consent it IS in violation of our signed contract. And I MAY chose to seek legal recourse to reclaim that kitty.
