The company announced the recall for products with the lot number QE12918 late Friday. It covers one lot of 200-lb Mintrate 36-15 breed right tub cattle feed with the product number 54549AAA6H.
The product was distributed between May 24 and June 29 and sold in Illinois, Nebraska, New Mexico and Texas, the company said. All product has been removed from retail shelves.
ADM started the recall after investigating a report from a customer that claimed the product may have resulted in animal death. The product may contain elevated levels of non-protein nitrogen, which could cause harm to cattle.
Overly high levels of non-protein nitrogen have been toxic for cattle, and have been linked to muscle tremors, abdominal pain, frothy salivation, bloat, excessive urination, teeth grinding, weakness, shortness of breath, incoordination and potentially death.
Customers who bought the recalled feed should ceasing using the product, and return it to the distributor or to ADM Animal nutrition for a refund, said the company.
