Hubbard Feeds expands recall of medicated poultry feed for elevated calcium levels

Expansion from first recall on July 2 includes three additional lots of feed

Hubbard Feeds Inc. is expanding its recall of medicated poultry feeds to include three additional lots of Hubbard Life Homestead FASTGROW AM.0.0125 NAB/NAB MEDICATED because of elevated calcium levels that may be harmful to chickens and turkeys.

This voluntary recall is the result of identification of additional lot numbers through assays by the US Food and Drug Administration related to a previous recall of the product on July 2. The expanded recall applies to products with item number 34739-2 and lot numbers: B00578594, B00582621 and B00584526. Products were sold in Indiana, Michigan and Illinois through retail feed stores, packaged in 50-lb. bags. 

No adverse events or complaints have been reported to date for the three additional lots. Chickens and turkeys exposed to these lots may exhibit decreased feed intake, decreased growth rate or death. If poultry producers observe animals that have consumed product from this particular lot number and have any of these symptoms, producers should contact their local veterinarian.

Poultry producers who have purchased Hubbard Life Homestead FASTGROW AM.0125 NAP/NAB MEDICATED with the lot numbers listed above should discontinue use of the product and return the unused portion to the place of purchase for a full refund. Poultry producers with questions may contact Hubbard Feeds Inc., Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. CT, at +1.507.388.9645.
