PMI Nutrition International has determined that additional Mazuri® and LabDiet® products fall within the scope of previous voluntary recalls, and is expanding a voluntary recall to include the additional varieties with specific lot codes listed below due to the potential for elevated vitamin D levels. Elevated vitamin D levels may cause death, or otherwise be harmful to animals and fish if fed for extended periods, potentially resulting in lack of interest in eating, weight loss and possible joint stiffness. The products are being added to those included in recalls announced on July 3, July 6, and July 12, 2012*, which were initiated after receiving customer complaints involving animal illness and small animal mortalities.  Click here for the list of products, including links to the list of products involved in the previous recall.

Land O’Lakes Purina Feed LLC has determined that an additional Purina® product falls within the scope of a previous voluntary recall, and is expanding a voluntary recall to include the one variety with specific lot codes listed below due to the potential for elevated vitamin D levels. Elevated vitamin D levels may cause death, or otherwise be harmful to animals and fish if fed for extended periods, potentially resulting in lack of interest in eating, weight loss and possible joint stiffness.  The product is being added to those included in a recall announced on July 12, 2012*, which was initiated due to analytical test results on retained samples that indicate a potential for elevated levels of vitamin D.
