Natural Balance Pet foods has voluntarily recalled their Sweet Potato and Chicken Dry Dog Food due to Salmonella contamination.

Here is more information from the official FDA announcement:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — June 18, 2010 – Natural Balance Pet Foods, Inc., of Pacoima, CA, announces a voluntary recall of Natural Balance Sweet Potato & Chicken Dry Dog Food with the “Best By” date of June 17, 2011, in 5-lb. and 28-lb. bags because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

This product was originally manufactured on December 17, 2009, and is the only Natural Balance product being recalled.
