After Northern Irish animal rescuer Debbie Nelson notified Westland of incidents with the feeder, Westland said: "We're sorry about this distressing experience. Pass our apologies to the lady concerned."
"This must have been a very distressing incident.
"We take all of our complaints seriously and the free feeders will no longer be running with this promotion."
Meanwhile, Westland are to launch a new growing media product at Glee this September.
