The animal nutrition business of American firm Cargill issued a voluntary recall Tuesday for one lot of 50 lb bags of NutreBeef Transition Pellet (MH) beef cattle feed because the products may contain mispackaged feed that has high levels of monensin, according to a company announcement published on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) website.
The impacted lot was manufactured at a Cargill facility in McPherson, KS and sold through distributors and retailers in Kansas and Texas. High levels of monensin can be toxic to cattle, causing colic-like symptoms, low potassium, breakdown of muscle in the urine, chronic cardiovascular issues, and possible death.
Cargill was notified of the issue by a customer, conducted an investigation, and issued a recall. The deaths of eight animals on one farm were linked to the lot of the product.
“At Cargill, the safety of our products and the well-being of the animals we feed is our top priority,” the company said in its announcement on the FDA website. “This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of and in cooperation with the United States Food and Drug Administration.”
Earlier this month, the animal nutrition business of American firm Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) issued a voluntarily recalled an amount of 50-lb bags of sheep feed because the products were be contaminated with high levels of copper.
