    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.

    He had a necropsy done on some of his turkeys. There is a thread about it on the turkey forum. That may be why it is being recalled.
