Purina Animal Nutrition is recalling two lots of Purina Honor Show Chow Showlamb Grower.

The product has elevated copper levels, which can cause health issues and potential mortality in sheep.

Symptoms of copper toxicity in sheep include: lethargy and anemia, grinding of teeth, thirst, off feed/poor appetite, pale to yellow mucous membranes, red/dark purple colored urine and recumbency. Death usually occurs one to two days after onset of clinical symptoms.

One customer has reported mortality in four sheep that may be associated with these two lots.
