In 2012, one Wellness dry dog food (not a Wellness Core variety) was recalled as part of the big Diamond Pet Foods salmonella recall. Wellness immediately stopped using Diamond to make any of its products. In 2013, all dry dog food made by Natura (Evo's parent company) was recalled -- again, due to possible salmonella contamination. Natura is now owned by Mars, Inc. which bought the brand from Procter & Gamble in 2014.The Wellness Core product line includes seven dry dog foods, six which claim to meet for adult maintenance.
