Bartlett Milling Company has initiated a limited recall of certain horse feeds in four US states due to potential Rumensin contamination.
The products were distributed to customers and retailers in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
Rumensin contamination can result in health problems, including mortality, in horses. Rumensin is a common additive in cattle and poultry food, but horses are extremely sensitive to it.
The products and lot number involved in the recall are:
- 50-pound bags of Bartlett Pasture Horse 10 Feed – Lot 288
- 50-pound. bags of Cleveland Carolina Champion Horse Feed – Lot 288
The recalled products were packaged in typical brand-specific feed bags. Lot numbers are printed on the front and back of each bag.
Retailers have been contacted and instructed to immediately withdraw from sale the recalled product and to notify customers who purchased the product.
The company said customers should discontinue feeding the product immediately. Customers who purchased this product should return remaining bags to their retailer.
Bartlett Milling said the recall was being conducted with the knowledge of the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services and the United States Food and Drug Administration.
