After receiving some customer complaints about animal illness and small bird deaths, PMI Nutrition International LLC, a unit of St. Paul, Minn.-based Land O’Lakes Inc., has recalled four varieties of LabDiet and Mazuri feed products for small birds, guinea pigs, maned wolves and primates.

The recalled products have the potential for elevated vitamin D levels, which can be harmful to animals if fed for extended periods, PMI reported.
