Lafeber Nutri Berries Recall

Do you feed your bird Lafeber Nutri Berries?  If so, you need to know that there is a voluntary recall on these treats.  The problem lies with a particular type of grain that was in the treats. nutri-berriesThe grain was stored improperly which lead to pockets of increased moisture.  These pockets, over time, can grow mold or bacteria.
