FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - October 26, 2012 – On September 27, 2012, Premium Nutritional Products, Inc. initiated a voluntary recall of ZuPreem FruitBlend™ With Natural Fruit Flavors maintenance formula bird foods for medium/large birds and for large birds with use by date codes of 11/30/13 or 11/13 and lot numbers 598405052 or 598405072. The recall is being conducted due to the product containing the combination of exceedingly high calcium levels, low phosphorus, and high vitamin D concentration resulting in a significant health risk to the birds. Consumption of food from these particular lots may make birds sick and, in some cases, may be fatal. Symptoms include decreased activity level or appetite, increase in water consumption or watery droppings. Customers whose birds exhibit these symptoms should immediately contact their veterinarian.
The two voluntarily recalled lots are 598405052 and 598405072. The lot and expiration dates by sku, are listed below:
