Natura Pet Products, a unit of the Procter & Gamble Co. (NYSE:PG), announced Friday it is expanding its voluntary recall to encompass all dry pet food products and treats with expiration dates before and including March 24, 2014. The company announced its initial recall March 29.

Natura said the products could be contaminated with salmonella. "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 or any surfaces exposed to these products," the company said.

Five brands are subject to the recall: California Natural, EVO, Healthwise, Innova and Karma. "This action affects dry pet foods and treats only; no canned wet food or biscuits are affected by this announcement," Natura said.

"Your pet’s health and safety are our #1 priority. We are taking all actions necessary to ensure that our products meet both your expectations and ours," the company said on its online site. Referring to the recall, it added, "We are sorry for the disruption, but we simply want to ensure that every product meets our highest quality standards."

The Georgia and Michigan departments of agriculture both confirmed samples of the recalled listed products did contain traces of salmonella.
