    Three Nutrena brands are being recalled, Chick Starter, I think grower and Corn

    Thanks for the link.

    Everyone note that this includes the Dumor Brand, but was only distributed in southern Arkansas, Louisiana, southern Mississippi and eastern Texas.

    I'm going to check mine anyways, as I just bought a new bag a few days ago.

    So.. what if one already fed the product to their poultry? Do we need to worry about adverse health effects?

    Whew, the nutrena product I am feeding isn't on the list. But it is still worrying. I mean, I don't save the bags. I dump two, 50lb bags into the metal bin I store feed in, and throw them out. I feed Country Feeds[​IMG] All Flock by nutrena, btw. Aflatoxin is nothing to mess around with.

    After the cat/dog food recall a few years ago I have taken to cutting the part of the label with the upc code and manufacturers info and taping it to the container I keep feed in cuz none of it stays in original bags. Usually get the same kind of food for each: cat, parakeets and chickens, but occasionally will try something different and I like to be sure. Chicken feed is outside so I tape it to the inside of the lid, then when there is a recall, I know what I've got. It only takes a few seconds and could be life saving.
