Lafeber Recalls Bird Feed due to Moisture

Posted: July 20, 2012, 3:30 p.m. EDT

Bird feed manufacturer Lafeber Co. recalled several lots of bird food due to pockets of high moisture that could lead to bacterial or fungal growth, the Cornell, Ill.-based company reported.

One of the grains Lafeber uses in several products was not properly stored prior to the company taking possession of it, causing the moisture pockets to form. Over time, the higher moisture levels can lead to bacterial or fungal growth, the company said.

The recalled products include:

Product description  Best Before
Parrot Nutri-Berries 12 oz. tubs 121913B
Parrot Nutri-Berries 3.25 lb. tubs, 20 lb. boxes 121813A, 121813B, 121913A, 122713A, 122713B and 010514
Parrot Popcorn Nutri-Berries 4 oz., 1 lb. bags 122013 and 122613
Cockatiel Sunny Orchard Nutri-Berries 10 oz. bags 122113 and 010214
Parrot Sunny Orchard Nutri-Berries 10 oz., 3 lb. bags 122513 and 122813

No adverse events have been reported to the company, but Lafeber recommended that customers stop feeding the product.

The company has integrated new quality control measures to prevent the issue from occurring in the future, Lafeber said.
