Swine feed recalled in Indiana, Ohio

The following recall has been announced:

Kent Nutrition Group Inc. is recalling some Kent Feeds swine feed products because they are deficient in vitamin D

The Muscatine, Iowa, company said the products are not harmful for people who have consumed any affected pigs, and there have been no reports of illnesses or incidents in humans.

Affected pigs generally haven’t been regularly exposed to sunlight. Mature pigs who eat the recalled feed could experience poor growth, stiffness, lameness, stiff gait and fractured bones.

In young pigs, vitamin D deficiency causes rickets and may lead to animal death. The company couldn’t specify how many pigs have died after eating the products.

The feed was sold in 19 states: South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, Illinois, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Missouri, Tennessee, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan, Kansas, Arkansas, Colorado, New Hampshire and Texas. The feed was sold in 50-pound bags or in bulk.

For more information, consumers may call 800-552-9620.
