Kaytee Hand Feeding Baby Bird Formula Food Recalled

Yesterday, we were contacted by the Kaytee staff and informed of a recall of some of their baby bird hand feeding formulas. We posted the news immediately on our Facebook page and Twitter feeds (@AVMARecall Watch, which is dedicated to news on pet food and product recalls, as well as our main feed, @AVMAvets) and this morning we updated the chart in the pet food recalls and alerts section of our site.

As a follow-up, the Kaytee company has issued a FAQ page for veterinarians. It contains answers to questions about the cause of the recall, recognizing and treating affected birds, and what the company is doing to prevent further problems.
