Below is a press release from Kentucky Performance Products regarding Neighlox:
November 4, 2009
Kentucky Performance Products (KPP) has been made aware that Saracen Horse Feeds in England has announced a re-call of Neigh-Lox equine antacid, lot number 9B04-408, due to allegations that the product is contaminated with Ractopamine, a common additive in pig feeds to promote muscle growth. Ractopamine has not been found to be harmful to the health of horses. However, it is included on the FEI’s [Federation Equestre Internationale] banned substance list due to its apparent use by some as a performance enhancer.
KPP has received no other complaints regarding Neigh-Lox.
At this time, the allegations are unsubstantiated. KPP takes such allegations very seriously. KPP’s main concern is for the health and wellbeing of the horses that depend on this product. KPP has requested and is currently awaiting receipt of product samples from the parties making these allegations along with copies of the results of any lab tests performed by these parties. When received, KPP and the manufacturer of the product will promptly test these samples to determine whether there is any merit to these allegations.
Since first becoming aware of these allegations, KPP began diligently working with the product’s manufacturer to investigate the claims. Preliminary results of this investigation indicate that all proper manufacturing procedures were followed. All preliminary assays of the manufacturer's retained product samples have shown no detectable amounts of the alleged contaminant. KPP and the manufacturer are conducting additional testing to ensure the continuing quality and safety of the product.
KPP will release additional information regarding its investigation as soon as it becomes available.
When I receive additional information, I’ll post it to the forum.
