Expanded Recall of Purina® Feed Products Due to Potential Elevated Vitamin D Level

Customer Service: (800) 522-3354

Land O’Lakes Purina Feed LLC has determined that an additional Purina® product falls within the scope of a previous voluntary recall, and is expanding a voluntary recall to include the one variety with specific lot codes listed below due to the potential for elevated vitamin D levels. 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 product listed below is being added to those included in a recall announced on July 12, 2012*, which was initiated due to analytical test results on retained samples that indicate a potential for elevated levels of vitamin D.

The products were initially manufactured from April 2, 2012 through May 8, 2012 at the Richmond, Indiana facility and distributed nationwide. Dealers have been asked to hold their inventories of these products, to notify affected customers, and to retrieve the product from these customers. The affected product should not be used, and, if possible, should be returned to the retail dealer.
