June 13, 2008 - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the expansion of a voluntary recall of Lake Country- and Land O'Lakes-brand lamb feed.
The FDA said the Land O'Lakes Purina Feed plant in Fremont, Neb., has expanded the recall to two more of its lamb feed products packed in 50 lb. bags. The feed might contain higher than acceptable levels of copper, posing a health risk to lambs.
The original recall included Lake Country Honor Show Lamb Grower DX Pellets and Lake Country Honor Show Lamb Starter DX Pellets. It has been expanded to also include Lake Country Honor Show Lamb Grower B30 pellets and Land O'Lakes Lamb Grower-finisher B30.
The recalled products have lot numbers ranging from Jan. 1, 2008, to May 30, 2008. The numbers -- printed as "8JAN01FRE1" and "8MAY30FRE1" -- are formatted as follows: 8MAY30FRE1 is 8=Year / MAY= Month / 30=Day of Month / FRE1=Plant Code.
Honor Lamb Show Grower DX Pellets and Honor Lamb Show Grower Starter DX Pellets were distributed in Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Minnesota and Iowa. Honor Show Lamb Grower B30 Pellets and Lamb Grower-Finisher B30 were distributed in Nebraska, Kansas and Iowa.
The company said the recalled products should not be stored or used. Customers with questions can contact the company at 877-585-2365.
