Horse owners in the states of Mississippi, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Indiana, Missouri and Virginia should be aware that specific lots of Purina’s Strategy? horse feed are being recalled by the company.
Purina Mills, LLC, is voluntarily recalling two specific lots of 50-pound bags of Strategy? Professional Formula GX horse feed. The recall is being implemented because metal fragments were found in a limited number of bags from one of the Strategy? product lots. Purina said that at the time the recall was issued, five customer complaints had been received. No animal health issues had been reported.
The products being recalled were manufactured in Nashville, Tennessee, on March 24-25, 2010. They were shipped to retailers and dealers in the states listed.
Only the following specific products and lot numbers are involved in the recall: (Formula No. 35SS; Item No. 0066547) of Strategy? Professional Formula GX Lot Numbers 0MAR24NST1A1and 0MAR24NST2A1
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.
Customers with products that do not have the specified lot numbers are not affected by the recall.
If you think you have purchased the recalled products, do not store or feed the products. Please return any and all unused portions of the product to your feed dealer for replacement.
Contact Purina’s Nashville Customer Service Office at 800-424-5234 if you have any questions or concerns about this recall.
