Land O'Lakes Purina Feed is recalling a limited amount of sheep feed because it could contain a higher than acceptable level of copper. The recall affects Land O'Lakes Sheep Balancer B136 produced at the Lincoln, Neb., plant on Oct. 8. The feed is packaged in 50-pound bags. The lot number, 8OCT08LNC1, can be found on the sewing strip of each bag.
The feed was distributed to only six dealers in southeastern Nebraska and western Iowa.
Excessive amounts of copper in feed can cause health issues and possibly death in sheep.
The company said Thursday that no customer complaints have been received involving the product. Retailers have been told to stop selling the feed and notify customers who purchased it. Customers will receive replacement feed.
