Yet Another Pet Food Recall



Well, it's happened yet again. This time it isn't dog or cat food; it's horse feed. Purina is involved in a voluntary recall, because some food they processed may contain toxic amounts of aflatoxin.

I got this email in my inbox Wednesday May 7th, 2008 at 2:19 PM Central Time.

Land O' Lakes Purina Feed LLC has implemented a voluntary product retrieval of certain feeds manufactured
1. Between November 3, 2007 and February 8, 2008 at their Statesville, North Carolina feed plant;
2. Between January 1, 2008 and March 10, 2008 at their Harrisburg, Pennsylvania feed plant &
3. Between January 1, 2008 and March 10, 2008 at their Guilderland, New York plant.

To date they have not received any confirmed aflatoxin-related animal health complaints involving any of the retrieved products. All dealers who purchased any of the retrieved products directly from Land O' Lakes Purina Feed LLC have been notified.

The dealers are located in the following states: Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia.
