Pet food maker Natura is issuing a massive recall for six of its brands.

The FDA found salmonella in one product during a routine test, so to be safe the company is recalling virtually everything packaged in the same production facility, the agency says.

The recall includes Innova, California Natural, EVO, Healthwise, Mother Nature, and Karma dry foods with expiration dates prior to June 10, 2014.

That includes biscuits, bars and treats in every package size, for cats, dogs and ferrets. Canned wet food was not affected. Natura has a guide explaining where to find the expiration date for specific products.

The company apologized and explained why it chose a much broader recall than necessary. “Our decision allows us to ensure that all products available in the marketplace were produced after June 10, the date when we implemented additional finished product testing procedures with the guidance of industry experts,” Natura says.

The FDA explains how salmonella affects pets:

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian.

If you purchased a product that has been recalled, you can get a full refund by filling out this form and sending it in with the clipped out barcode label and expiration date.
