LabDiet is owned by Purina Mills, LLC, the animal feed unit of Land O’ Lakes which is separate from Nestlé Purina PetCare Company, the pet food division of Swiss-based Nestlé.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – PMI Nutrition International has initiated a voluntary recall of four varieties of the LabDiet® and Mazuri® feed products listed below, due to the potential for an elevated vitamin D level in these products. Elevated vitamin D levels can be harmful to animals if fed for extended periods.

These products were manufactured at the Richmond, IN feed plant and were distributed throughout the U.S. and to a few international customers. 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 bag, near the top. Lot numbers are formatted as follows: APR= Month / 17=Day of Month / 12 =Year / 2 =Plant Code.

Formula No. Item No. Description Lot No.
5025 0001330 Guinea Pig Diet 50# APR17122

5MD9 0011482 Mazuri® Maned Wolf Diet 33# APR21122

The recall was initiated after receiving a small number of customer complaints, which involved animal illness and small bird mortality.

Customers who purchased the product will receive a full refund. For more information on the product recall, contact your local dealer or Customer Service (1-855-863-0421, x 224) between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. (EDT), Monday through Friday.
