Land O’Lakes Purina Feed LLC is recalling certain lots of Purina fish and horse feed products due to elevated vitamin D levels. The elevated vitamin D levels “…may cause death or otherwise be harmful to animals and fish if fed for extended periods, potentially resulting in lack of interest in eating, weight loss and possible joint stiffness.” The initial recall of July 13, 2012 was recently expanded when the company found that additional Purina products fell within the scope of the voluntary recall. The products included in the recall were manufactured between April 2, 2012 and May 8, 2012 in their Richmond, Indiana facility, and were distributed nationwide.
You can find a complete list of the affected products, including the feed involved in the expanded recall, on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration press release. If you have any of the affected products, return them to your local dealer for a full refund. For additional information, contact Purina Customer Service Monday through Friday at 1-800-522-3354 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. EDT.
