Land O’Lakes and its subsidiary PMI Nutrition International, issued a fourth recall of products manufactured at Land O’Lakes’ Richmond, Indiana-based plant due to the potential for elevated vitamin D levels, the companies reported on Friday, July 20, 2012.
Foods made for birds were part of the first Land O'Lakes recall.
Earlier this month, PMI Nutrition recalled four lots of feed after receiving customer complaints of animal illness and death. A few days later, PMI expanded the recall 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:
