Limited Recall of LAND O LAKES® Sheep Balancer B136

The Land O'Lakes Purina Feed plant in Lincoln, Neb., has initiated a limited recall of LAND O LAKES® Sheep Balancer B136, packaged in 50-pound bags, due to the potential for a higher than acceptable level of copper. The recall is limited to Sheep Balancer B136 produced at the Lincoln plant on October 8, 2008.

The only product and lot number involved in the recall is:

Formula No. 3LN7
Item No. 1860220
Description Sheep Balancer B-136
Lot Number 8OCT08LNC1

The lot number is found on the sewing strip of each bag.

The product was distributed only to six dealers in southeastern Nebraska and western Iowa.

The presence of copper in higher than acceptable levels can cause health issues and, at high levels, mortality in sheep. To date, no customer complaints have been received involving the product.

Retailers have been contacted and told to immediately quarantine the recalled product and notify customers who purchased the product. Customers should discontinue feeding the product immediately. Customers who purchased these products will receive replacement feed.
