From Zupreem:

October 2, 2012 – ZuPreem®, under parent company Premium Nutritional Products, Inc. is voluntarily recalling the 11/30/13 and the 11/13 expiration date codes of ZuPreem Medium/Large and Large FruitBlend™ With Natural Fruit Flavors maintenance formula bird foods. This voluntary recall is being initiated because two lots may contain calcium levels higher than the recommended level.

Link to recall, FAQ, and list of codes:
http://www.zupreem.com/fruitblendvoluntaryrecall

I have one of the recalled bags and have notified the store. Thank heavens I had not opened this bag yet.

Janny, I noted in another thread that you mentioned that your birds did not like the new natural fruitblend pellets and listed one of the dates that was on the recall list.

Wow...I started sweating bullets. I just ordered the Natural this morning. Thankfully that isn't recalled.

Yes I have made a call to my Avian Vet. I am worried this could have been the issue with Cabrie a while back when we thought she had a stroke. Too much calcium can cause some pretty serious health problems and too little of course as well. She was going to look over the blood results and get back to me. Although she didn't feel that Cabrie's suspected stroke was entirely from the pellet even if it was too high of calcium.

Thanks for the info. I've got two bags of the recalled pellets. Fortunately unopened.

Makes me wonder about Syd's "episode" as well. Having the expiration date of the recall bags is great, if you are still in possession of the bag. I wonder if Zupreem can tell us when the recall lots hit the shelves.

I'll shoot them an email tomorrow and update when I hear back.

ETA: I do agree as Janny's vet said, an elevated level of calcium for a short period of time would not lead to seizures.
