Feed Solutions recalls fish, bird, guinea pig feed due to excess vitamin D

Posted Jul 14 2012 3:45pm

In case you missed it, there was a recall on animal feed yesterday . . .

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – July 13, 2012 – Feed Solutions has initiated a voluntary recall of certain varieties of the feed products 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.

Although no customer complaints have been received to date, the following products with specific lot numbers are being recalled as a precaution due to analytical test results on retained samples that indicate a potential for elevated levels of vitamin D.

These products were manufactured at the Richmond, IN feed plant and were distributed at select Tractor Supply and Del’s Feed & Farm Supply stores nationwide starting April 2, 2012 through May 8, 2012. The affected Tractor Supply and Del’s Feed & Farm Supply locations have been contacted and asked to hold these products and to notify and retrieve the product from customers. The affected product should not be used, and where applicable, be returned to the closest Tractor Supply or Del’s Feed & Farm Supply location.

Lot numbers for the WellSolve W/G® product are laser printed at the bottom of the label next to the ingredients listing on each pail. Lot numbers for the other recalled products are laser printed on the back of each paper bag near the top. Lot numbers are formatted as follows: APR= Month / 17=Day of Month / 12 =Year / 2 =Plant Code
