Land O’Lakes recalled several products, including WellSolve W/C for horses.
PMI initially recalled some lots of its Mazuri and LabDiet feed products earlier this month as was reported here on AnnArbor.com.
It has been expanded to include some AquaMax feed products and additional Mazuri and LabDiet products.
The company has honed in on the issue that led to the elevated vitamin D levels, but because of the regulatory process, details cannot be released.
Elevated vitamin D levels can cause death or otherwise be harmful to animals and fish if fed for extended periods, and may result in lack of interest in eating, weight loss and even joint stiffness.
All of the products involved in the recalls were manufactured at a plant in Richmond, Ind., between April 2, 2012, and May 8, 2012.
The recalled PMI products were distributed throughout the United States and to other countries.

For questions or more information, consumers are urged to call PMI customer service at 1-855-863-0421, extension 224, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday.
