I don't feed Purina, but I thought this should be posted: Subject: Purina Horse/Goat/Pig Feed Recall Purina Horse/Goat/Pig Feed Recall Purina has recalled several horse products including Senior, affecting almost their entire horse feed product line. Purina has said there are no deaths from their horses feed that has been recalled, while some people are reporting There ARE deaths and illnesses! The recall was not made available to the general public!! Notices went to the dealers directly. On 4/9 Purina recalled 27 equine products including Senior and Platform lines. On 4/21 they recalled another 18 products. The problem is Aflatoxins which can cause liver dysfunction, immune suppression and neurological difficulties.>>Aflatoxins are toxic and one of the most carcinogenic substances known. Request forwarding and cross-posting to reach all horse owners who live in OH, TN, KY, MS and states east of there, including the Carolinas, Georgia, Florida, etc. If you live East of the Mississippi River, you'd best check. Permission to cross-post has been granted; if you know folks who have/keep horses, especially on the East Coast, please pass this on. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++ The recalled products are from 3 East Coast Plants: Guilderland, NY; Harrisburg, PA; Statesville, NC The mfg plant codes are: GDL, HAR, STA If these codes are on your feed bags, stop feeding and contact your dealer NOW.
