Feed recalled after 3 horses die in South Florida

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — A Lakeland-based animal feed manufacturer is recalling four of its horse feed products following a possible link to the deaths of three horses in South Florida.

The deaths are being investigated by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Spokeswoman Erin Gillespie told The Ledger of Lakeland (http://bit.ly/1xPxHEP ) the feed has been sent to a private lab for testing and the results should be ready by the end of the week.

Lakeland Animal Nutrition recalled the four products on Oct. 22. It is a subsidiary of Alltech, an animal nutrition company based in Lexington, Kentucky. The horses died between Oct. 16 and 20 at a South Florida ranch.

More information on the recall is available on the company’s website, www.lanfeeds.com/lanfeeds/index.html .
