FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Land O'Lakes Purina Feed LLC Announces Voluntary Recall of Certain Poultry Feeds Due to Lack of Added Vitamin D
(St. Paul, Minn.) July 26, 2012 - Land O'Lakes Purina Feed LLC has initiated a voluntary recall of certain varieties of poultry feed products with the specific lot codes listed below, due to the lack of added vitamin D in these products. Inadequate levels of vitamin D in a bird's diet for greater than 2-3 weeks may cause bone weakness, fractures or joint problems, and potentially death, if birds are not exposed to direct sunlight daily. Birds living outdoors may not experience symptoms due to the formation of natural vitamin D that occurs within the bird's body with exposure to a minimum of 30 minutes of direct sunlight daily.
To date, there have been no reported animal illnesses involving the products below being recalled. The absence of added vitamin D in these products occurred as a result of a formulation software conversion.
"We are working diligently with retailers and distributors to notify customers about this issue and, as a precautionary measure, we urge customers to not feed their flocks these products," said Dave Hoogmoed, Chief Operating Officer. "Instead, please return them to the point of purchase for a refund and replacement feed. We deeply regret the concern and inconvenience this is causing."
The affected products were manufactured between May 23 and July 20, 2012, at the Milford, Indiana, Nashville, Tennessee and St. Joseph, Missouri feed plants, and distributed nationwide under the Purina and DuMOR brand names listed below. All products manufactured after July 20 include added vitamin D in their formulation.
