Cargill recalls feed due to lack of Vitamin D

17 April 20241 min reading

Cargill has initiated a recall of feed for meat birds, including broilers and turkeys, due to the absence of Vitamin D. The recalled product may lead to mineral deficiencies and bone issues.

The lack of Vitamin D in the product compelled Cargill's animal nutrition business to initiate a recall of feed designed for meat birds. The recalled broilers and turkey feed, Nutrena Country Feeds Meat bird 22% Crumble (RV), may cause mineral deficiencies and bone issues in birds, such as rickets.

The affected feed was distributed across the eastern United States, encompassing markets in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. Cargill's decision to recall the product follows an isolated report of young meat birds diagnosed with rickets, prompting immediate action to address the issue.

The absence of Vitamin D in the feed poses significant health risks for meat birds, including lameness and rubbery bones, which can impede their growth and overall well-being. Cargill aims to safeguard consumer confidence, assuring that it is making every effort to swiftly and transparently address the matter.
