Purina Animal Nutrition has voluntarily recalled multiple lots of Purina Rabbit Feed, Purina Turkey Feed, Country Acres Rabbit Feed and DuMOR Chick Starter/Grower Feed because of elevated calcium levels in the product.
According to the Food Drug Administration, Purina Animal Nutrition have received reports from customers claiming the rabbit products may have caused poor health and/or mortality. No reports have been received for the chicken or turkey products, however.
Elevated calcium carbonate levels can cause health issues and potential mortality in rabbits, according to the FDA, and continued feeding of the products may result in death.
Elevated calcium carbonate levels in young chickens and turkeys can lead to leg abnormalities and kidney calcification.
