Cargill Cattle Feed Recalled: Deficient in Vitamins A, D & E!

Cargill’s animal nutrition business conducts voluntary recall of select mineral product used in ruminant feed

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - March 5, 2013 - Cargill’s animal nutrition business today announced a voluntary recall of certain brands of its ruminant mineral products because they were deficient in vitamins A, D and E. The affected products were manufactured at Cargill’s facilities in McPherson, Kansas, and Montgomery City, Missouri, between Dec. 7, 2012, and Feb. 27, 2013. The absence of added vitamins in these products was due to an oversight in Cargill’s manufacturing process that has been remedied.

This recall is limited to only those products and lot code ranges listed below. The affected product was sold in 50 pounds bags and the lot code can be found printed on the product tag that is attached to the bag.
