Cargill Animal Nutrition Conducts Regional Recall of Nutrena NatureWise® Goat Pellets

    SILVER SPRING, Maryland, March 7, 2012—Cargill Animal Nutrition today announced a voluntary and limited regional recall of Nutrena NatureWise® Goat Pellets due to an error in labeling. The bags of affected goat feed should have indicated that the feed included Decoquinate, a medicated article for the prevention of coccidiossis that is commonly included in ruminant feed, but which is not approved for lactating goats.

    The goat pellets were manufactured at Cargill’s Montgomery, Alabama facility on Decemer 31, 2011, February 18, 2012, and February 25, 2012. The pellets were distributed in five states—Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and North Carolina. 

    Cargill is implementing this goat feed recall as a precautionary measure. Consumers are urged to return listed products—whether in opened or unopened bags—to their place of purchase for a full refund or replacement. For more information, including photos of products involved, consumers can go to www.cargill.com/feed/goat-feed-recall or call toll free (1-800-392-5757) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. CST.
