Salmonella prompts recall of Natures Menu raw pet food in Europe

In September 2016, Natures Menu produced a batch of 900 bags of Turkey Country Hunter RAW nuggets. 280 bags were sent to Norway. 620 individual bags have been distributed in the UK.

The Norway authorities have sent one bag of the product away for testing and it has come back with a positive result test for Salmonella. Whilst salmonella may effect some humans if ingested, it is also known that dogs and cat’s digestion is designed to eat raw foods. Natures Menu takes responsible raw feeding extremely seriously and is supporting the FSA with the recall of any bags of food left in circulation as a complete precaution.

Natures Menu is the number one producer of safe raw pet foods and produces in excess of 18 million portions of raw food every year since 1981. We employ vets, offer CPD training about raw feeding and education to consumers about serving raw foods safely with good hygiene practices. Other raw pet food brands such as Nutriment are unaffected and fine to use.

Batch codes can be found in the form of a best before date to the left of the barcode. If you have a bag of Country Hunter Turkey nuggets with the code 13/12/17 and would like to return it as a precaution please message us or email [email protected] and we will be happy to collect the product and refund your purchase.
