WASHINGTON -

Federal safety officials said several brands of Natura Pet Products dry pet food have been recalled over concerns they were contaminated with salmonella.

The FDA said the recalled products were packaged in a single production facility. During routine testing, a single lot tested positive for the presence of salmonella. The voluntary recall involves In products with expiration dates prior to June 10, 2014.

The recalled products were sold in bags through veterinary clinics, select pet specialty retailers, and online. Canned wet food products are not included in this recall.

Safety officials said there have been no reports of pet or human illness associated with this product.

The FDA said salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the products.

Safety officials said 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. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, you should contact your veterinarian.

If you have purchased the recalled products, you should throw them away.
