Expanded Voluntary Recall of MazuriŽ Feed Products Due to Potential Elevated Vitamin D Level
PMI Nutrition International has determined that additional MazuriŽ products fall within the scope of previous
voluntary recalls, and is expanding a voluntary recall to include the additional varieties with specific lot
codes listed below due to the potential for elevated vitamin D levels. Elevated vitamin D levels may cause
death, or otherwise be harmful to animals and fish if fed for extended periods, potentially resulting in lack of
interest in eating, weight loss and possible joint stiffness.
The products listed below are being added to those included in recalls announced on July 3, July 6, and
July 12, 2012*, which were initiated after receiving customer complaints involving animal illness and small
animal mortalities.
The alpaca product lots included in the recall were manufactured at the Milford, Indiana plant, using
ingredient initially manufactured from April 2, 2012 through May 8, 2012 at the Richmond, Indiana facility.
The other lots included in this expanded recall were initially manufactured at the Richmond, Indiana plant.
The products were distributed nationwide and to international customers in Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico,
Taiwan, Singapore, Chile and Uruguay. Lot codes for some products listed in this recall expansion extend
beyond this date range, due to recoding upon further manufacturing, including use as an ingredient in other
feed formulations or packaging into different sizes. Dealers have been asked to hold their inventories of
these products, to notify affected customers and to retrieve the product from these customers. The affected
product should not be used, and, if possible, should be returned to the retail dealer.
