Manna Pro Feed Issues Voluntary Recall in CA, NV, OR USA

Via San Francisco Chronicle:

(01-28) 18:22 PST LOS ANGELES, (AP) --
A manufacturer has issued a voluntary recall of horse feed that was distributed in California, Nevada and Oregon because it may contain a medication that can be fatal to horses if fed at high levels.
Missouri-based Manna Pro Products announced Friday that it is voluntarily recalling Family Farm Complete Horse 10 horse feed, lot number 1006, because it may contain potentially harmful levels of the medication monensin sodium, or Rumensin.
The feed was distributed Jan. 11 through Jan. 21 to retailers in California, Nevada and Oregon.
No illnesses or deaths have been reported and retailers have removed it from their stores, but the company says customers who purchased the product should stop feeding it immediately.
