At Cargill, providing you the best quality products for your animals is a top priority. That’s why we’re conducting a voluntary recall of certain brands of our ruminant mineral products that are deficient in vitamins A, D and E. The affected products were manufactured at Cargill’s facilities in McPherson, Kansas, and Montgomery City, Missouri, between December 7, 2012, and February 27, 2013. Cargill is implementing this voluntary product recall as a corrective measure. No other Cargill Animal Nutrition products are affected by this recall.
We are not aware of any animals becoming sick from these free-choice minerals, but we have asked our distributors to pull affected products from their shelves. We have provided a list of the affected products here. No other Cargill Animal Nutrition products are affected by this voluntary recall.
We are working with our distributors to notify customers about this issue. Customers who have purchased any of the products noted above are asked to return them to the point of purchase for a full refund.
In the meantime, we are working diligently to resupply our distributors. We appreciate your patience and understanding. We are very sorry for this situation.
