Land O’Lakes Purina Feed LLC has initiated a limited voluntary recall of a single lot of a Country Acres poultry feed in 50 pound sacks.
The the St. Paul, Minn.-based company said Friday that the feed has the potential to have higher than acceptable levels of salt.
The maker says higher salt levels can cause serious health issues and, at high levels, potential mortality in poultry.
The recall was initiated after a small number of customers complained that their birds died, the company said.
The product was manufactured at the St. Joseph, Mo., feed plant and was distributed to dealers in northeastern Oklahoma, eastern-central Kansas, western Arkansas, and western Missouri.
Dealers have been contacted and asked to hold these products and to notify and retrieve the product from customers.
The affected product should be returned to the retail dealer and not used.
The feed typically is used by small-flock owners. The recalled feed has lot number 9MAR19STJ3 printed on the sewing strip of the bag.
