Grange Co-Op Recalls Rogue All Purpose Rabbit Pellets For High Vitamin D Health Risk

Grange Co-op is initiating a recall of Rogue All Purpose Rabbit Pellets in 25# (25RP) 50# (50RP), 1,500# Tote (RP) no lot codes - purchased between March 1, 2016 and January 12, 2017 in Southern Oregon / Northern California from any Grange Co-op Retail Store or Wholesale Dealer. The recall is being initiated because samples tested by the Oregon Department of Agriculture discovered these products may contain higher than acceptable levels of vitamin D.

Rabbits consuming this product would be at risk for developing clinical hypercalcemia when fed diets containing very high levels of vitamin D, as a sole source of nutrition. Clinical signs of hypercalcemia include such things as increased thirst, increased urination, weakness, decreased appetite, and possibly death.

For any purchases of Rogue All Purpose Rabbit Pellets during these dates, please return the unused portion to any Grange Co-op location for a full refund. Any questions regarding this recall may be directed to Brian Wilkerson, Director of Agricultural Operations, at (541) 664-1121 or productrecall@grangecoop.com.  Web site: www.grangecoop.com.
