Nutrena Goat Pellets Recalled On Label Omission

A label omission has caused Cargill Animal Nutrition to recall three lots of goat feed.

Cargill Animal Nutrition voluntarily recalled three lots of Nutrena NatureWise Goat Pellets on Wednesday due to a labeling error.

The packages failed to indicate that the feed contains decoquinate, a medicated article for the prevention of coccidiosis that is not approved for lactating goats.

The goat pellets were manufactured at Cargill’s Montgomery, Ala., facility on Dec. 31, 2011, Feb. 18, 2012 and Feb. 25, 2012. The pellets were distributed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and North Carolina.

The affected products include:

Cargill urged consumers to return opened or unopened bags of the feed to their place of purchase for a full refund or replacement.
