PMI Nutrition International Recalls Four LabDiet and Mazuri Feed Varieties

By Vladimir Negron    July 10, 2012 at 08:36PM

PMI Nutrition International has initiated a voluntary recall of four varieties of the LabDiet and Mazuri animal feed products due to the potential for an elevated vitamin D level in these products. Elevated vitamin D levels can be harmful to animals if fed for extended periods.

Recalled products, including formula number, item number, description and lot number are as follows:

5025 0001330 Guinea Pig Diet 50# APR17122
56A6 0001452 Mazuri Small Bird Maintenance 25# APR15123
5MA2 0040996 Mazuri Primate Maintenance Biscuit 25# APR22122
5MD9 0011482 Mazuri Maned Wolf Diet 33# APR21122

According to the FDA press release, these products were manufactured at the Richmond, ID, feed plant and were distributed throughout the U.S. and to a few international customers.

The recall was initiated after receiving a small number of customer complaints involving animal illness and small bird deaths.

If you have purchased the product, contact PMI Nutrition International at (855) 863-0421 ext. 224 between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday. The company will assist you on how to receive a full refund.
