    Oh wow, this is very sad and horrible news :( I know a lot of our members here feed these brands.
    MSU was feeding the Zupreem and the Higgins and had toxicity issues, but I don't see Lafeber being mentioned there. Better safe than sorry, IMO but I'll be following to see the results. I don't know that I would necessarily throw out the tropical nutriberries, but I would hold off on feeding them for sure until we have clear results.

    She didn’t say but mentioned she talked to another rescue that had a “die off” but I think the number was three

    Someone (not a member here) told me that they tested the zupreem and it turned out negative. They didn't give sources so I'm not sure. The red/pink vomit reminds me of zupreem fruit poop... Dexter hasn't had any issues with his, though.

    That Zupreem did, or MSU? Because Zupreem has not retested their batch, nor have they tested the sample from the rescue. They are maintaining the position that their food is safe without any additional testing. Both Higgins and Lafeber DID retest their batch and are both awaiting results from MSU.

    Those poor birds. Very sad loss. Is this a recall of some sort? So many people feed those brands and foods.
