St. Paul, Minn. -- A poultry feed typically used by small flock owners has been voluntarily recalled by its manufacturer.
Land O'Lakes Purina Feed initiated the limited voluntary recall of a single lot of Country Acres poultry feed after a small number of consumer complaints of poultry mortality were reported to the company. The recall is attributed to the potential for higher than acceptable levels of salt, which can cause serious health issues or mortality in poultry.
The lot being recalled is Formula No. 6514, Item No. 0013357, "Country Acres Layer 16 Crumbles," Lot No. (MAR19STJ3. It was manufactured at a St. Joseph, Mo., feed plant and distributed to dealers in a four-state region, including northeastern Oklahoma, eastern and central Kansas, western Arkansas and western Missouri. Dealers have been asked to pull the product, and purchased feed, available in 50-pound bags only, should be returned to the dealer and not used, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. A full refund will be available. Customers can call Land O'Lakes Purina Feed customer service at 1-800-227-8941 for more information.
