An FDA press release sent out on November 24, 2014, notes that Natura Pet Products discovered a problem in the formulation of five lots of its EVO pet food (one ferret food and four kitten and cat foods) during an investigation into a discrepancy in ingredient inventory. The affected product lots contain insufficient levels of vitamins and excess levels of minerals. Natura Pet Products is voluntarily recalling these EVO ferret and kitten and cat foods. 

No reports of animal health concerns have been received, but Natura Pet Products notes that the products do not meet its quality standards and should not be eaten by pets. Eating food without the proper vitamins for a prolonged period can cause illness. The excess minerals do not pose a health concern.

No other foods are affected by this recall.

Pet owners should dispose of any of these products if they have them. Retailers have been instructed to withdraw these products from sale. The products were sold online and at stores in California, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Texas and Vermont. 

For more information about the recall, pet owners can contact Natura Consumer Relations at its website or call 855-206-8297 (Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST).
