Purina recalls 4 different food brands sold in 32 states

Shawn M. Carter 8 hrs ago

Pet company Purina Animal Nutrition has issued a massive recall across several of its food brands.

The recalled products — Purina Rabbit Feed, Purina Turkey Feed, Country Acres Rabbit Feed and DuMOR Chick Starter/Grower Feed — received several customer complaints, according to a press release, that the food was causing their pets and animals to fall ill.

The company said it found elevated calcium levels in the food, which could cause severe health issues in rabbits and young chicken and turkeys, and in some cases, death.

In a statement, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said “elevated calcium carbonate levels can cause health issues and mortality in rabbits. Continued feeding of these products may result in death as a result of feed refusal. Elevated calcium carbonate levels in young chickens and turkeys can lead to leg abnormalities and kidney calcification.”

Symptoms of “excess calcium carbonate in rabbits may include pinkish urine and lethargy due to decreased feed intake,” the agency said. “Chicken and turkeys up to 6 weeks of age may show leg abnormalities associated with excessive dietary calcium carbonate.”

The products in question were produced from Dec. 16, 2019, to Feb. 3, 2020, and sold in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, New Jersey, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Nebraska, South Dakota, Florida, Virginia, North Dakota, North Carolina, South Carolina, Colorado, California, West Virginia, Texas, Hawaii and Arizona.

A list of the formula, item and lot numbers can be found on the FDA’s website.

Impacted customers should discard the food or return it to a local feed store for a refund.

Could the Coronavirus Hit California’s Homeless Population? Health Officials are Worried

Fear is quickly setting in with officials in Sacramento, LA, and San Francisco.

The homeless population, which is quite large, poses several unique challenges.

Living outside has weakened their immune system, and they have a tendency to move around quite a bit, and that leads to the possibility that the disease could spread rapidly.

Also, since they live in a very cramped environment and do not have easy access to bathing and other hygienic facilities makes them a prime target for the coronavirus.

They could easily carry the disease throughout the city and start an epidemic of massive proportions.

Peter Beilenson, director of health services for Sacramento County said:

“I was thinking about it when I was in the … shower [on Thursday] morning, literally. We’ve been checking on the schools and on the nursing homes and on healthcare facilities, etc., and so I was thinking, ‘What about the homeless?’”

Dr. Jeffrey Klausner, professor of medicine and public health at UCLA, said:

“Unfortunately, we know that people living in crowded, unsanitary conditions are at increased risk for a variety of infectious diseases. This is definitely a population … with other chronic medical conditions, so should they acquire coronavirus, they are potentially at risk for more serious complications.”

From The Washington Examiner:

Beilenson and others said homeless people present unique risks and challenges for outbreaks of infectious diseases. Though the number of coronavirus cases remains at only a few dozen in the United States, homeless people, in particular, for multiple reasons could be vulnerable to both a quick spread of the illness and to more severe cases.

People living outdoors often do so in close quarters and lack the ability to maintain basic hygiene, including precautions such as hand washing. They may also face more danger from serious infection because of existing illnesses or frequent use of drugs or alcohol — factors with the potential to make a case of COVID-19 more severe.

Some homeless people also move often, making them both hard to reach for treatment and potentially increasing the spread of the virus if they are carriers.

Dillsburg couple kept in coronavirus quarantine
The Smedley’s were expected to be able to leave quarantine on Monday, March 2.

SAN ANTONIO — UPDATE (March 2): A Dillsburg couple that expected to return home today is being kept in coronavirus quarantine.

Bill Smedley posted this on his Facebook page:

PREVIOUSLY: The Smedley’s wedding anniversary cruise celebration was supposed to end February 3rd. Instead, they spent weeks on lockdown on the Diamond Princess cruise ship off Yokohama.

Then, they were transported to the United States to face another 14-day quarantine at Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio, Texas. Now, they are told if they continue to test negative for the virus, they can go home March 2.

“The cruise line is making our flight arrangements,” Bill Smedley told FOX43. He added, “Monday, after we have our temperature checked and it is normal or below we’ll get a certified document from the CDC saying we’re clear to travel. And, we’re going to be released from the actual legal requirement. We’re under custody right now. And, we’re going to be released from custody. And, they’re going to take us on buses to the airport.”

Bill Smedley said the people who tested positive on his flight were transported to Nebraska. The State Department said the 14 did not show symptoms at the time. Still, Bill Smedley said the positive passengers on his plane were not the first people who he and his wife have had contact with that have fallen sick. Back on the cruise ship the couple was trapped on multiple passengers became ill, he said, including their head waiter.

“Our head waiter at our table for dinner that served us every meal for 29 nights, touched every one of our plates, now is in the hospital,” said Bill Smedley. He added, “we were exposed to it. Whether we get it or not is not the issue I think.”

In Washington state, 2 nursing home patients and high school student tested positive for coronavirus

There are now at least 72 confirmed and presumptive positive cases of coronavirus in the United States and one death.

WASHINGTON, USA — Washington state health officials are investigating a possible outbreak of coronavirus at a long-term nursing facility in which two people tested positive for the disease.

In all, six people have tested positive for the novel coronavirus in the state, including a man whose death was reported Saturday, making him the first coronavirus fatality in the United States. The other cases are a high school boy, a woman who traveled to South Korea and an unidentified man.

California is the only state with a higher number of positive cases, with 11.

The cases associated with the Life Care Center, a nursing facility in Kirkland, Washington, include a 40-year-old female health care worker who has no known travel outside the US. She is in satisfactory condition at a local hospital, officials said. The second one, a woman in her 70s, is hospitalized in serious condition.

More than 50 residents and staff from the Life Care Center in Kirkland are experiencing symptoms, and will be tested for coronavirus, said Dr. Jeffrey Duchin, health officer for Seattle and King County.

“In addition, we’re aware of a number of individuals associated with the long-term care facility who are reportedly ill with respiratory symptoms or pneumonia, and we’re in the process of investigating this situation as an outbreak,” Duchin said. “We’re in the beginning stages of our investigation.”

In a statement, the facility said it’s not allowing visits from families, volunteers or vendors, and is also placing admissions on hold for the time being.

“We are now in the process of working with the long-term care facility, with the support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,” Duchin said. “And we’re in a process of providing support to that facility to care for the infected patients, to protect the uninfected patients, and to provide infection control.”

The news comes the same day the first US death from coronavirus was reported in Washington state, health officials said Saturday. The man in his 50s, who had underlying health conditions, was not a resident at the care facility.
High school boy had flu-like symptoms

The high school boy in Snohomish County became ill with flu-like symptoms last Monday, the student’s family said in a statement.

He was tested for the flu but the tests came back negative, so he returned to Jackson High School on Friday, the county health district said in a blog post.

He stayed on campus about five minutes and went home because the family was notified by health officials that his original sample had been tested for coronavirus and came back presumptive positive, the health district said.

“The family didn’t know their son was being tested for COVID-19… Like most people, they assumed it was the flu. They did all the right things,” the health district said.

The high school was closed over the weekend and will be closed Monday to allow for a thorough cleaning and disinfecting before the students return.

District health officials say they are investigating this case since it suggests that local transmission of COVID-19 is occurring.

“Our team is still in the midst of the investigation, so we do not yet know the possible source of infection,” said Dr. Chris Spitters, health officer for the Snohomish Health District.
State of emergency in Washington state

There are now at least 72 confirmed and presumptive positive cases of coronavirus in the United States and one death. They include 44 people who were aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship, three people repatriated from China and 24 cases that occurred in the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The cases across the US are in Arizona, California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Oregon, Washington state and Wisconsin.

A presumptive case is a patient who has tested positive at a state, county or city lab, but whose results have not yet been confirmed by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency Saturday, directing state agencies to use all resources necessary to respond to the outbreak.

“This will allow us to get the resources we need,” Inslee said. “This is a time to take common-sense, proactive measures to ensure the health and safety of those who live in Washington state.”
