Natural Balance Pet Foods, Inc. Recalls Products in Response to American
Nutrition Inc. Pet Food Recall

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Pacoima, CA -- April 27, 2007 -- Because of the pet
food recall initiated today by American Nutrition Inc., Natural Balance Pet
Foods has announced it is issuing a nationwide recall of a number of canned
products manufactured by American Nutrition. This action is limited to four
specific Natural Balance canned formulas: Chicken Canned Dog Formula 13 oz ,
Beef Canned Dog Formula 13 oz, Lamb Canned Dog Formula 13 oz, and the 3oz and
6 oz Ocean Fish Canned Cat Formulas.

Natural Balance Pet Foods is taking this voluntary action after learning the
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) confirmed rice protein concentrate used by
American Nutrition contained melamine, a substance not approved for use in
food. These products are being recalled in addition to our previously recalled
Venison and Brown Rice canned and bagged dog foods, Venison and Brown Rice dog
treats, and Venison and Green Pea dry cat food.

Natural Balance Pet Foods has not received any indication of quality or safety
issues, including pet illness, with the four withdrawn formulas. However,
because American Nutrition informed the company that these four specific
products may include rice protein concentrate, Natural Balance Pet Foods felt
this action was necessary for the protection of its customers and their pets.

It should be noted that the products being recalled were not formulated or
labeled to contain rice protein concentrate. While the FDA is investigating
this, current information indicates this error is a result of a manufacturing
deviation by American Nutrition. Natural Balance is working with the FDA in
this matter.
