Natural Balance Pet Foods, Inc. is recalling certain types of cat food due to possible salmonella contamination.

If you have a house cat, listen. Earlier this week, Natural Balance Pet Foods, Inc. issued a voluntary recall for certain cat food products that may be contaminated with salmonella. The potential contamination was discovered during routine surveillance sampling by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.

Fortunately, no complaints or illnesses have been reported related to the products. Regardless, it is still important for cat owners to be aware of the matter, as salmonella can be very damaging to a cat’s health. For example, cats with salmonella infection may experience the following symptoms: vomiting, diarrhea, decreased appetite, fever, or excessive salivation. If you believe your cat has eaten any of the recalled product and is showing symptoms, contact a veterinarian immediately.
