Purina Animal Nutrition feed plant in Portland, Ore., has initiated a recall of poultry feeds due to the inadequate vitamin and trace mineral levels.
Inadequate vitamin and trace mineral levels can result in health problems, including mortality, in poultry. The problem was discovered during the investigation of an “ingredient inventory discrepancy”.
