The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is reporting that Hubbard Feeds is voluntarily recalling EASY FEED ORGANIC CHICK STARTER/GROWER ORG with batch number B01785781. The product has been found to contain deficient levels of salt. Pet Age has confirmed the voluntary recall with the Hubbard Feeds communications manager for North America and Europe.
Low sodium may cause abnormal nerve impulses so a chick’s muscles will not move well. Low sodium can also affect the cell’s normal internal pressure which can affect cardiac output due to deflated muscle not working well. The growth of birds may also be negatively impacted by low sodium.
This recall relates only to EASY FEED ORGANIC CHICK STARTER/GROWER ORG distributed in the state of Colorado, with the following batch number printed on the package:
|PRODUCT NAME||Batch/Lot#||Item No./Product No.||Package Info.|

No other batch numbers or other Hubbard Feeds products are involved in this voluntary recall. According to the FDA announcement, Hubbard Feeds will continue to work closely with the Food and Drug Administration throughout the recall process.
