    Western Milling LLC Voluntarily Recalls Universal Turkey and Kruse G.B. Turkey Grower Feeds Because of Possible Health Risk to Animals
    Fri, 22 Oct 2010 13:32:00 -0500

    Western Milling, LLC announced a voluntary recall of certain types of store brand noncommercial turkey feed after the company learned that the feed may contain monensin, a medication included in medicated turkey feed. The turkey feed subject to this voluntary recall was not labeled as medicated and was not formulated to contain monensin.

    got this in my email from "U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA)" <[email protected]>

    Yes, Tunastopper lost 20 turkeys in July from this feed and the company wasn't too quick to do anything about it until the USDA was called. Very unfortunate.
