Sorry to be the bearer of bad news again but...better to be aware..

Natura Pet has confirmed they are recalling at least 20 pet food products affecting dogs, cats, and ferrets. We heard a rumor that Natura was having a major recall due to possible salmonella contamination. After spending half an hour on hold with them, a friendly representative finally confirmed the recall and gave us the list. Why they don’t have a readily available press release on their website or through the FDA, we don’t know. The products listed below may be contaminated with salmonella. These products appear to be distributed nationwide through PetCo, various online retailers, and local businesses. This is shaping up to be a large recall. Please spread the word. Like Healing Springs Animal Hospital on Facebook for the latest pet health & safety updates.
This is not the first negative news since Proctor & Gamble purchased Natura Pet in 2010. In 2011, Natura Pet settled a $2.15 million class action lawsuit for allegedly overstating the quality of their ingredients. The lawsuit was started in 2009, one year before Proctor & Gamble became involved with Natura Pet.
The recall affects the products named below that also have an expiration date between 12/17/13 and 1/2/14. If you have products possibly contanimated with salmonella, you should discontinue use. You can contact the company (800) 532-7261 between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. (CST) Monday – Friday. Good thing it’s a toll-free number considering the possible on-hold wait time and the lack of recall help on their website.

Here is more specific information, lot numbers for the cat foods etc...
Four Cat Food Brands Recalled
Salmonella threat leads to widespread cat and dog food recall.
By CatChannel News Editors | Posted: March 19, 2013, 9 a.m., EDT
The full list of recalled pet food includes 80 lots. Natura Pet Products on Monday voluntarily recalled selected lots of California Natural, Evo, Innova and HealthWise dry dog and cat foods because of potential salmonella contamination.
The affected products are sold in bags through veterinary clinics, pet specialty retailers and online in the United States, Canada, Korea, Malaysia, Japan, Hong Kong and Costa Rica.
One Evo ferret food was recalled. The other identified foods are dog and cat formulas.
No salmonella-related illnesses were reported, noted Fremont, Neb.-based Natura, a division of Procter & Gamble. Symptoms of salmonella poisoning in cats and dogs include lethargy, diarrhea, fever and vomiting. People who handle contaminated pet products may exhibit similar symptoms.
The recalled dog and cat foods, which bear specific UPC and lot codes, were produced in a single plant over two weeks in December. Routine testing by the Michigan Department of Agriculture showed the presence of salmonella in food collected from one store.
Here are the affected cat products:
