Mazuri® Alpaca Care Update

Manufacturing Changes – New Pellet Size, New E1, Minor Packaging

Update – Starting May 1, 2023

Mazuri will change the pellet size of Alpaca Care from a 1/4" pellet to a 5/32” pellet. This requires a new E1# and we will remove the E1# and 4-digit code from the packaging to support our international shipments. This change may help decrease the incidence of choke and will help further clarify product offerings within the alpaca community. The quality and high-level of nutrition will remain consistent during this transition.
