Premium Nutritional Products Announces Ongoing Voluntary Recall Of Select ZuPreem® Bird Foods

SHAWNEE, Kan., Oct. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On September 27, 2012, Premium Nutritional Products, Inc. initiated a voluntary recall of ZuPreem FruitBlend™ With Natural Fruit Flavors maintenance formula bird foods for medium/large birds and for large birds with use by date codes of 11/30/13 or 11/13 and lot numbers 598405052 or 598405072.  The recall is being conducted due to the product containing the combination of exceedingly high calcium levels, low phosphorus, and high vitamin D concentration resulting in a significant health risk to the birds.  Consumption of food from these particular lots may make birds sick and, in some cases, may be fatal.
