ARKANSAS, US - Land O'Lakes Purina Feed LLC is recalling a single batch of its poultry feed due to excessive salt levels.

Land O'Lakes Purina Feed LLC has initiated a limited voluntary recall of a single lot of a Country Acres poultry feed in 50-pound sacks, reports TwinCities.com.

The St. Paul, Minnesota-based company said on 24 April that the feed has the potential to have higher than acceptable levels of salt. The maker says higher salt levels can cause serious health issues and, at high levels, potential mortality in poultry.

The recall was initiated after a small number of customers complained that their birds died, the company said.

The product was manufactured at the St. Joseph, Missouri, feed plant and was distributed to dealers in a four-state region: north-eastern Oklahoma, eastern-central Kansas, western Arkansas and western Missouri.

Dealers have been contacted and asked to hold these products and to notify and retrieve the product from customers. The affected product should be returned to the retail dealer and not used.

The feed is typically used by small-flock owners.

The recalled product is identified as follows: (Formula No. - Item No. - Description - Lot No.) 65140013357 Country Acres Layer 16 Crumbles 9MAR19STJ3.

Lot numbers are printed on the sewing strip of each bag. Lot numbers are formatted as follows: 9MAR19STJ3, 9Year / MAR Month / 19Day of Month / STJ3 Plant Code.

Customers who purchased the product are eligible for a full refund. For more information on the product recall, contact local dealers or the company's customer service at 800-227-8941 between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Central time, Monday through Friday.
