Concerns over possible salmonella in dry pet food prompted a voluntary recall, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

The FDA said six different brands of dry and treat-sized pet food from manufacturer Natura Pet is being recalled. The Nebraska-based company said a single positive test for Salmonella by the FDA prompted the recall.

The products under the recall include those that have expiration dates prior to June 10, 2014.

The FDA said the products are sold in bags through veterinary clinics, pet specialty retailers and online in the United States and Canada.

According to the FDA, the following brands by Natura are under the recall:

  • Innova Dry dog and cat food and biscuits, bars and treats;
  • EVO dry dog, cat and ferret and biscuits, bars and treats;
  • California Natural dry dog and car goods and biscuits, bars and treats;
  • Healthwise dry dog and cat foods;
  • Karma dry dog foods;
  • Mother Nature biscuits, bars and treats.

There have been no reported illnesses among pets or people in connection to the pet food.

Officials urged anyone who has the product to discard it.

Natura Pet noted on its website that it has donated in the past food to southern Nevada pet shelter Nevada SPCA. According to the company's website, more than 4,000 cases of dog and car good were donated.
