Manna Pro Products has announced a recall that may be of interest to new chick owners.

The company is recalling one lot of Manna Pro Chick Starter Medicated, a feed option for chicks. The product may contain excessive salt, which poses health hazards to the animals. Symptoms of excessive salt intake include increased water consumption, anorexia, and weight loss, and may lead to death. Symptoms may be more pronounced when water intake is limited.

The recalled product is sold in 25 pound yellow and white woven plastic bags bearing UPC 0 95668 10555 6. Lot number MADE 11/23/15 WP-2 is printed on the white strip sewn across the bottom of the bag.

The feed was distributed from November 23, 2015 through April 7, 2016 to retail stores in California, Hawaii, Nevada, and Oregon.

To date, three customers have reported losses in their flocks.

Consumers in possession of this product should stop use and contact the company for a full refund.

Customers can contact Manna Pro at (800) 690-9908 extension 2.
