Grange Co-Op Recalls Rogue All Purpose Rabbit Pellets

By Deidre Grieves    January 19, 2017 at 06:54PM

Grange Co-op, a retail supplier offering agricultural supplies, farm products, consumer goods, petroleum products, and pet supplies, has issued a recall of Rogue All Purpose Rabbit Pellets purchased by consumers from Grange Co-op retail stores or wholesale dealers in Southern Oregon and Northern California between March 1, 2016 and January 12, 2017.

 

The following product is being recalled:

 

Rogue All Purpose Rabbit Pellets in 25# (25RP) 50# (50RP), 1,500# Tote (RP). There are no lot codes associated with these products.

 

The recall is being initiated because samples tested by the Oregon Department of Agriculture discovered these products may contain higher than acceptable levels of vitamin D.

 

Rabbits that are fed diets with high levels of vitamin D are at risk of developing hypercalcemia. Symptoms of hypercalcemia include increased thirst, increased urination, weakness, decreased appetite, and possibly death.

 

Consumers that purchased Rogue All Purpose Rabbit Pellets during these dates should return the unused portion to any Grange Co-op location for a full refund. Any questions regarding this recall may be directed to Brian Wilkerson, director of agricultural operations, at (541) 664-1121 or [email protected].
