Cargill's animal nutrition business announced March 5 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, Kan., and Montgomery City, Mo., 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.
No adverse health effects related to these products have been reported to date.
The affected product was sold in 50 lb. bags and the lot code can be found printed on the product tag that is attached to the bag. No other Cargill Animal Nutrition products are affected by this recall. This recall is limited to only those products and lot code ranges listed at www.cargill.com/feed/news/mineral-recall/index.htm.
Customers should return remaining products to their local distributor for a full refund.
