Cargill Conducts Voluntary Recall of Lamb Feed

    April 10, 2013 — Cargill’s animal nutrition business today announced a voluntary recall of Showmaster® S-Series Show Lamb Feed (BW) because it contained incorrect sodium molybdate levels. To date, there are 170, 50-pound bags of feed still out in the market. Cargill continues to take appropriate steps to pursue retrieval on those bags.

    The affected products were manufactured at Cargill’s Burlington, Washington facility between March 1, 2013 and March 15, 2013 and were sold only in Washington and Idaho. No other Cargill Animal Nutrition products are involved in this recall.

    The recall applies only to this single product with the following Packaging Date Codes (lot numbers):

    38306326464
    38306726610
    38307426757
     

    Sodium Molybdate is an essential nutrient for livestock. Undue levels of molybdenum in lamb diets may lead to adverse animal health effects, which are transitory in nature. Call your veterinarian if your animals are exhibiting severe diarrhea or have experienced other adverse health effects while consuming the affected product. Customers should return remaining products to their local distributor for a full refund. For more information, call toll free 509-771-1439.
