A couple weeks ago I made my regular trip to the petstore to stock up on my staples. I put a big bag of Innova food into my cart and headed to check out. But the cashier wouldn’t let me buy the food. There was a recall and she wasn’t allowed to sell it to me. She didn’t know when the recall would end. I missed the tiny sign alerting me to this when I grabbed the bag. I headed back to the food section and was forced to pick out a new dog food on the fly.
This was a little frustrating because I’d waited until my Innova was down to the last drop before I went to the store. That meant I had to abruptly introduce my dogs to a new food without transitioning them over slowly. Foruntately, they handled the transition without any upset tummies.
Innova is a Natura Pet Product. Natura Pet Products is recalling its dry foods for dogs and cats because they may be contaminated with salmonella bacteria. The recall was announced last month but this week it was expanded.
