Suggested Veterinary Products

Purina Mills LLC is voluntarily recalling two specific lots of 50-pound bags of Strategy Professional Formula GX horse feed and one lot of Layena SunFresh Recipe Pellet poultry feed. The company issued the recall after five customers complained about metal fragments they had discovered in a limited number of bags from one of the Strategy product lots. No animal health issues had been reported, according to Purina Mills.

People who have purchased the recalled products should not store or use the products and are asked to return unused product to their dealer for replacement, according the company. Those with products that do not have the lot numbers below are not affected by the recall.

The products being recalled were manufactured in Nashville, Tennessee, on March 24-25, 2010. They were shipped to retailers and dealers in Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Missouri and Virginia.

The following specific products and lot numbers are involved in the recall:


Formula No. Item No. Description Lot Number
35SS  0066547 Strategy Professional Formula GX 0MAR24NST1A1
35SS  0066547 Strategy Professional Formula GX 0MAR24NST2A1
61R3 0056922 Layena SunFresh Recipe Pellet 0MAR25NST2A1

The lot number is found on the sewing strip of each bag and is interpreted as follows:
0=Year / MAR=Month / 24=Day of Month / NST1A1=Plant Code.

Customer questions or concerns may be directed to the company's Nashville Customer Service Office at 800-424-5234.
