Below is information from Mazuri. The recall has been expanded. This includes 6f and other rodent foods as well as other exotic foods:


Expanded Voluntary Recall of Mazuri® Feed Products Due to Potential Elevated Vitamin D Level

(St. Paul, Minn.) July 13, 2012 – PMI Nutrition International is expanding a voluntary recall to include the additional varieties of the Mazuri® feed products 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 if fed for extended periods, potentially resulting in lack of interest in eating, weight loss and possible joint stiffness.

The products listed in the attachment with specific lot numbers are being recalled due to analytical test results on additional lots of retained samples that indicate a potential for elevated levels of vitamin D. These products are being added to those from earlier recalls announced on July 3, 2012 and July 6, 2012* which were initiated after receiving a small number of customer complaints which involved animal illness and small bird mortality.

The products were manufactured at the Richmond, IN feed plant and were distributed nationwide and to a few international customers starting April 2, 2012 through May 8, 2012. Dealers have been contacted and asked to hold these products and to notify and retrieve the product from customers. The affected product should not be used, and where applicable, be returned to the retail dealer.

Lot numbers are laser printed on the back of each paper bag, near the top. Lot numbers are formatted as follows: APR= Month / 17=Day of Month / 12 =Year / 2 =Plant Code.

Customers should return remaining products to their retailer to receive a refund. For more information on the product recall, contact your local dealer or Customer Service (1-800-227-8941) between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. (EDT), Monday through Friday.


* Note - The July 3 and July 6, 2012, PMI Nutrition International voluntary recall included the following Mazuri® feed products.

Formula No. Item No. Description Lot No.

56A6 0001452 Mazuri® Small Bird Maintenance 25# APR15123
