ADM Animal Nutrition has recalled select cattle feed products manufactured at its Columbus facility.
ADM Animal Nutrition is a leading manufacturing, nutrition and marketing business offering a wide range of leading-edge products for the animal nutrition market, according to its official website. Jackie Anderson, spokeswoman for ADM Animal Nutrition, acknowledged the recall but did not go into detail about the type of cattle feed in question.
“ADM Animal Nutrition is recalling select cattle feed products manufactured from its Columbus, Nebraska, plant due to formulation issues caused by a system malfunction. We take incidents like this very seriously,” she said, in a provided statement to The Columbus Telegram. “We have an excellent, long-time track record for safety, and we maintain very rigorous standards and process for all our ingredients.”
Anderson said ADM officials reached out to customers directly impacted by the issue to recall all of the company’s affected feed as a precaution. After discovering the issue on Nov. 12, Anderson said officials immediately took steps to ensure it will not happen again and have been working closely with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
“A few customers have informed us of cattle loss, and we are working directly with those customers to investigate their respective situations,” Anderson said.
Those with questions about the issue are encouraged to call ADM at 800-217-2007 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Central Time Monday through Friday.
“We have been working with FDA throughout this process and will continue to involve FDA until the recall is closed,” Anderson said.
