PMI Nutrition Recalls Some Mazuri, LabDiet Feeds

Posted: July 5, 2012, 2:45 p.m. EDT


After receiving some customer complaints about animal illness and small bird deaths, PMI Nutrition International LLC, a unit of St. Paul, Minn.-based Land O’Lakes Inc., has recalled four varieties of LabDiet and Mazuri feed products for small birds, guinea pigs, maned wolves and primates.

The recalled products have the potential for elevated vitamin D levels, which can be harmful to animals if fed for extended periods, PMI reported.

The recalled products are:

Formula No.

Item No.

Description

Lot No.

5025 0001330 Guinea Pig Diet 50# APR17122
56A6 0001452 Mazuri Small Bird Maintenance 25# APR15123
5MA2 0040996 Mazuri Primate Maintenance Biscuit 25#   APR22122
5MD9 0011482 Mazuri Maned Wolf Diet 33# APR21122


The lot numbers are laser printed on the back of each bag, near the top, the company reported.

The exotic animal feeds were manufactured at PMI’s plant in Richmond, Ind., and distributed throughout the U.S. and to some international customers.

PMI reports it has contacted dealers and has asked dealers to notify customers and retrieve the animal feed. The diets should not be fed, the company reported.

Customers who purchased the recalled animal feed will receive a full refund and are urged to contact their local dealer or PMI’s customer service (855-863-0421, ext. 224) for more information about the recall. PMI’s customer service line operates Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. EDT.
