Bil-Jac Foods Voluntarily Recalls Adult Select Dry Dog Food Due To Mold Contamination

Bil-Jac Foods of Medina, Ohio announced a voluntary recall of Adult Select Dry Dog Food on August 24 because of mold contamination. Excessive moisture in the affected bags allowed for mold growth.

No illnesses or related customer complaints have been reported to date.

Testing is ongoing, and Bil-Jac promises to release all information as it becomes available. The affected product should not be used and, if possible, should be returned to the retailer.

PMI Nutrition International has determined that additional Mazuri® and LabDiet® products fall within the scope of previous voluntary recalls, and is expanding a voluntary recall to include the additional varieties 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 and fish if fed for extended periods, potentially resulting in lack of interest in eating, weight loss and possible joint stiffness.

The products listed below are being added to those included in recalls announced on July 3, July 6, and July 12, 2012*, which were initiated after receiving customer complaints involving animal illness and small animal mortalities.

The alpaca product lots included in the recall were manufactured at the Milford, Indiana plant, using ingredient initially manufactured from April 2, 2012 through May 8, 2012 at the Richmond, Indiana facility. The other lots included in this expanded recall were initially manufactured at the Richmond, Indiana plant.

The products were distributed nationwide and to international customers in Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, Taiwan, Singapore, Chile, and Uruguay. Lot codes for some products listed in this recall expansion extend beyond this date range, due to recoding upon further manufacturing, including use as an ingredient in other feed formulations or packaging into different sizes. Dealers have been asked to hold their inventories of these products, to notify affected customers, and to retrieve the product from these customers. The affected product should not be used, and, if possible, should be returned to the retail dealer.

Please note: this Press Release is related to the following: http://wcms.fda.gov/FDAgov/Safety/Recalls/ucm310916.htm  posted on July 6
and http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm310630.htm  posted on July 3.

July 13, 2012
PMI Nutrition International is initiating a voluntary recall of certain varieties of the AquaMax™ feed products with specific lot codes listed below, due to the potential for elevated vitamin D levels. Although no customer complaints have been received to date, the products are being recalled due to analytical test results that indicate a potential for elevated levels of vitamin D.

The company is also expanding its previously announced voluntary recalls to include additional varieties of the Mazuri® and LabDiet® feed products with specific lot codes listed below due to analytical test results on additional lots of retained samples that indicate a potential for elevated levels of vitamin D. Elevated vitamin D levels may cause death, or otherwise be harmful to animals and fish if fed for extended periods potentially resulting in lack of interest in eating, weight loss and possible joint stiffness. 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 and guinea pig mortality.

All products included in these recalls were manufactured at the Richmond, IN feed plant and were distributed nationwide and to Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam, Bahamas, Cayman Islands, Curaçao, Mexico, Cambodia, Japan, China, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Chile, and the United Kingdom, 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.
