Kansas Feed Manufacturer Issues a Limited Voluntary Recall of a Lamb Feed Product Only Distributed in Kansas and Nebraska
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Frankfort, KS -- February 3, 2006 -- Suther Feeds, Inc is voluntarily recalling one lot number (#19305) of Expression lamb feed packaged in 50 lb. bags. The lot number recalled was manufactured for Suther Feeds, Inc by Garnavillo Mills, in Garnavillo, Iowa. This feed was distributed August 4, 2005 through August 10, 2005 to four customers in Kansas, one customer in Nebraska and three dealers in Kansas. All of the feed has been accounted for with the exception of three bags.
Laboratory testing found a potentially harmful level of monensin sodium (Rumensin) in lot #19305, which has been implicated in five lamb deaths. Monensin sodium, a drug compound approved for use in some livestock species, can be fatal if fed in high levels to lambs. Customers who have purchased Expression lamb feed with the specified lot number #19305 should not continue to use this product and are asked to return it to Suther Feeds, Inc., 105 South Kansas Ave., Frankfort, Kansas or to the dealer where it was purchased.
At this time, the limited recall only involved feed with this specific lot number and does not include any other Suther Feeds, Inc. feed products or lots of Expression lamb feed.
