    Here is what I was able to locate from http://www.purina-mills.com/

    Eastern U.S. Feed Product Retrieval
    Land O’Lakes Purina Feed LLC has implemented a voluntary product retrieval
    of certain feeds manufactured between November 3, 2007 and February 8,
    2008 at our Statesville, N.C., feed plant; between January 1, 2008 and February
    8, 2008 at our Harrisburg, Penn., feed plant; and between January 1, 2008 and
    March 10, 2008 at our Guilderland, N.Y. plant.
    This voluntary retrieval was initiated due to the possible presence of aflatoxin
    contamination above acceptable levels.
    To date, we have received no confirmed aflatoxin-related animal health
    complaints involving any of the retrieved products. Nevertheless, we have taken
    such precautionary action as our utmost priority continues to be our customers
    and the well-being of their animals.
    All dealers who purchased any of the retrieved products directly from Land
    O’Lakes Purina Feed LLC have been notified. These dealers are located in the
    following states: Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Maine, Maryland,
    Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina,
    Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia and
    West Virginia.
    Our investigation and product testing identified one ingredient of concern, which
    originated from a single supplier. We have discontinued purchasing from this
    supplier. Other feed companies that purchased from this supplier are facing a
    similar situation.
    For more information about specific products included in the retrieval, contact the
    Statesville, N.C., Feed Plant at 704-924-5100 or the Harrisburg, Penn., Feed
    Plant at 717-737-4581.
