Company Announcement

Cargill's animal nutrition business is conducting a voluntary recall of Nutrena® Country Feeds® Meat bird 22% Crumble (RV) due to non-inclusion of Vitamin D. Lack of Vitamin D in meat bird diets can lead to mineral deficiencies and bone issues, including rickets in growing birds. Symptoms include lameness and rubbery bones.

The affected products were manufactured and sold in the eastern United States and are being recalled from retail outlets in the Alabama, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia markets. The lot code and manufacture date can be found on the bottom right-hand side of the label.

Cargill discovered the issue after receiving a single report of young meat birds diagnosed with rickets. Cargill immediately investigated and discovered the non-inclusion of Vitamin D.

Consumers and other end users who have any of the affected lots in their possession should return remaining product to their local dealer or retailer for a replacement or full refund. For more information, call 800-441-2699 (Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time).
