Horse feed recall notice

For our friends in California, Nevada, and Oregon:

This is not a national recall.  However, others should be aware of this potentially fatal additive that is in livestock feed.

Feed Manufacturer Issues Limited Voluntary Recall of a Horse Feed Product Distributed in California, Nevada, and Oregon
Sat, 29 Jan 2011 10:54:00 -0600

Manna Pro Products, LLC is voluntarily recalling a single lot (1006) of Family Farm Complete Horse 10 horse feed, UPC 0 95668 90151 6, packaged in 40 lb. bags because it may contain monensin sodium (Rumensin). Monensin sodium is a medication approved for use in some livestock and poultry species, but can be fatal to horses if fed at sufficiently high levels.

Product: Family Farm Complete Horse 10 horse feed
Distributed: To retailers in California, Nevada, and Oregon
Why: It may contain monensin sodium (Rumensin), which can be fatal to horses if fed at sufficiently high levels
Illnesses reported: None

Hopefully, this will not hurt any horses. 

It is definitely something to be aware of.  Feed companies are knowledgeable and careful.  But big mixers might not be cleaned out properly and accidental additions of products can happen. 

Just an informational and awareness moment.

I subscribe to food safety updates from the FDA for humans and our equine, canine, feline, and poultry friends.  Periodically we’ll provide pertinent updates on this site and our organic greenhouse blog: www.TheGreenhouseAtMorganLane.com

You can also subscribe to this useful government service:  www.foodsafety.gov

but be aware…it adds to your email box !!!
