Cargill Animal Nutrition is recalling 50 lb. bags of Nutrena NatureWise Goat Pellets distributed in 5 states because of an error in labeling.

The recalled bags of goat feed should have indicated that the feed included Decoquinate, a medicated article for the prevention of coccidiossis that is commonly included in ruminant feed, but which is not approved for lactating goats.

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

The recall is for:

– NatureWise Goat Pellet 16, lot code 1MG1365, date code 1MG1DEC31

– NatureWise Goat Pellet 16, lot code 3MG2049, date code 3MG2FEB18

– NatureWise Goat Pellet 16, lot code 1MG2056, date code 1MG2FEB25

The recalled feed – in opened or unopened bags — may be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund or replacement. For more information, including photos of products involved, go to or call toll free, 1-800-392-5757, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. CST.
