Land O’Lakes Further Expands Purina Feed, Mazuri and Lab Diet Recalls

Posted: July 23, 2012, 5:00 p.m. EDT


Land O’Lakes and its subsidiary PMI Nutrition International issued a fourth recall of products manufactured at Land O’Lakes’ Richmond, Ind.-based plant due to the potential for elevated vitamin D levels, the companies reported Friday.

Earlier this month, PMI Nutrition recalled four lots of feed (to read about this recall, click here), after receiving customer complaints of animal illness and death. A few days later, PMI expanded the recall (to read about the recall expansion, click here) to include three additional lots of feed, and about a week after that, PMI further expanded the recall to include several lots of Aquamax feed and dozens of additional lots of LabDiet and Mazuri feed.

On the same day, Land O’Lakes Purina Feed recalled several lots of feed manufactured at the same Richmond plant where the PMI products were manufactured and Feed Solutions, a DBA of Land O’Lakes, also recalled several lots manufactured in Richmond that were distributed to Tractor Supply and Del’s Feed & Farm Supply stores.

The current expansion of the recall includes one Purina Feed brand, as follows:

Formula No. Item No. Description Package Weight Lot Numbers
5120 0006570 Fish Chow Meal 50 lb. May 05 12 1

Purina Feed told dealers to hold their inventories of the recalled product and urged customers to stop using the product and return it to their retail dealer.
