FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — St. Paul, Minn — June 6, 2008 — The Land O’Lakes Purina Feed plant in
Fremont, Neb., has initiated a limited voluntary recall of two lamb feed products due to higher than acceptable levels of copper.

The products and lot numbers involved in the recall were produced at the Fremont, Neb., feed plant only, and are described as:

Formula No.

Item No.




Lake Country® Honor Show Lamb Grower DX Pellet



Lake Country® Honor Show Lamb Starter DX Pellet

Lot numbers range from Jan. 1, 2008, to May 30, 2008, and are listed on the bag as 8JAN01FRE1 to 8MAY30FRE1 inclusive.

Lot numbers are printed on both the tag and sewing strip of each bag. Lot numbers are formatted as follows: Example 8MAY30FRE1 – 8=Year / MAY= Month / 30=Day of Month / FRE1=Plant Code.

The products included in this recall were distributed only in the following areas: Nebraska, north central Kansas, northwest Colorado, southern Minnesota, and western and south central Iowa.

The recall was initiated after receiving a customer complaint regarding the products. In addition, Land O’Lakes Purina Feed stopped producing the lamb feeds at the Fremont, Neb. plant and immediately began product testing.

To date, the presence of copper above acceptable levels has been found, which can cause serious health issues, and at high levels, mortality in sheep.

Retailers have been contacted to quarantine these products and notify customers who purchased the product. The affected product should not continue to be stored or used. Customers who purchased these products will receive replacement product.
