Several complaints led to a recall expansion. Four customers complained about ShowTec BB 18 BMD after their pigs showed little to no interest in the food, despite loving it in the past. One of those pigs suffered tummy troubles. One customer also complained about their pig not wanting to eat MoorMan’s ShowTec Sale Burst w/DF CTC/DEN.

Rabbit food was added to the recall because three customers complained about their rabbits losing interest in Pen Pals Professional Rabbit 18.

Chickens could face increased thirst, decreased appetite, reduced egg production, and a reduced growth rate. In rare cases, it could be fatal for chickens. Pigs may experience a reluctance to eat and digestive issues. Rabbits may deal with loose stools, weakness, and a reduced growth rate.
