Has EVO Pet Food Ever Been Recalled?

Yes. In fall 2014, a few lots of dry cat food and one lot of dry ferret food were pulled because they didn’t have the correct amount of vitamins/minerals. Earlier, in 2013, came a much wider recall where the entire EVO line was pulled because of potential salmonella contamination. That recall began with a limited amount of product, and was expanded twice before declaring a recall on all EVO and Natura items manufactured with expiration dates before March 25, 2014. It was soon expanded yet again, to include all products with an expiration date of June 10, 2014 or earlier.
