Western Milling LLC has initiated a voluntary recall of certain types of store brand noncommercial turkey feed due to possible contamination with monesin, a medicine found in medicated turkey feed.

The recalled feed was not formulated to contain monesin, which can cause injury or death when consumed by turkeys in excessive volume. Products subject to the recall were distributed in May and June 2010 to 57 retail animal stores in California, eight feed stores in Arizona and one store each in Nevada and Hawaii. The feed was sold in 50-pound paper bags under the brands Universal and Kruse Perfection. The lots affected are:


  • U Turkey/Gamebird Grower Crumble, Lot 175 (PC K52105)
  • K G.B. Turkey Grower Crumble, Lots 126, 127 and 175 (PC K52105)
  • U Turkey/Gamebird Starter Krumble, Lots 126 and 175 (PC U332095)

Consumers with products fitting the above numbers should return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
