Recall On Kaytee Exact Hand Feeding Baby Bird Formula Due to Excess Vitamin D

In a comment on the previous post, we were warned that some Exact Hand Feeding Formula's have been recalled. We'd not heard about this, and have a 5 lb. bag used without any apparent problems. It expires January 17, 2013, so it's not part of the recall dates shown below.

"The recalled lots are listed below:

Products and product lots that do not appear on the list are not subject to this recall.

This recall is being initiated due to an elevated amount of vitamin D that was unintentionally added in an isolated mixing batch during the manufacturing process. No other Kaytee bird foods are involved in this recall."

Unfortunately, we have some babies that were fed this formula. We currently have a 6 week old senegal that we are worried won't make it through the night. And a 4 month old macaw baby who is showing all the signs and symptoms that Kaytee mentions on their web site. We are taking all of our birds who were fed the bad food to the vet on Monday for lab. Praying this little senegal can hold on.

I am so sorry. It must be heartbreaking for you and everyone else who is affected by this. To spend the time and trouble and become fond of the birds, not to mention the financial loss. Such a dreadful thing to have happen. I pray your little ones survive.
