    In regard to many products being recalled from the shelves of Tractor Supply Company, and the fact the FDA reports it as 'company initiated' it should be known that Cargill did NOT warn anybody of the aflatoxins until *after* the USDA discovered that they had been under-reporting the levels of aflatoxins contained w/in the ingredients that "may have been" used in what we've been feeding our birds, our dogs, and other animals

    What caused the recall?

    Corn with higher-than-acceptable levels of a naturally occurring substance called aflatoxin was delivered to our plant in Lecompte, La., and may have been used in the feed. Aflatoxin is a result of mold. We wish to stress this feed recall was not the result of any reports of animals getting sick.
    Why did Cargill not catch the elevated aflatoxin levels?

    We test corn before it goes into our feed products. Aflatoxin levels above the acceptable limit were discovered during routine testing by the Louisiana Department of Agriculture. After the state’s test results were disclosed to us, we conducted an investigation and discovered a problem with one of the materials we use for our own testing.
    What is Cargill doing to remedy the problem?

    We have made sure our test is working properly and no longer underestimating aflatoxin levels. We have validated our testing program and are cooperating with the FDA and the Louisiana Department of Agriculture to investigate the aflatoxin in the corn. The NatureWise, Showmaster and other feed affected by the recall has already been pulled from store shelves.
    Is this recall related to the dog food recall Cargill announced Dec. 6, 2011?

    The feed affected by this recall was made in the same plant as the dog food recalled earlier this month.

    I've seen a sudden rise in symptoms that may be explained by the use of feeds that have been recalled, and suspect some problems w/ my own flocks that may be caused by what I strongly suspect to be an under-reported problem, and a more wide-spread distribution than previously stated. It's a bit early to make any allegations, but I think the following search results serve as prima facie evidence of my concerns:

    Moldy feed from TS. MY 4th bag of feed from tractor supply was a moldy clump of feed of course it was the stuff at the bottom of the feed bag so I feed my chickens bad feed before hitting the bottom of the bag. I was very mad that it was feed to my chicks but could do nothing about it by the time I found it out.

    I am in Louisiana and buy alot of my feed from TSCo. I have gotten Moldy feed from them- and I bring it back EVERY Time. When I first began, I didn't realize it was mold, and it killed a few of my birds. I brought it back, and they replaced the cost of my 4 show birds. I didn't want to make them mad, but wanted them to know. They have come to appreciate it. I havn't got any moldy feed lately.

    My initial concern was that they produced formulas intended for raising chicks that had no vitamin D added, which is a serious problem.

    Diggin' around brought the aflatoxins to my attention, which fits well w/ the spike of symptoms I've been seein' here lately.

    I hadn't realized Dumor was produced for Tractor Supply, or that this problem was so severe, or that it spans such a ridiculously long list of products, and for an absolutely unacceptable period of time:

    Cargill Animal Nutrition has recalled two regional brands of dog food—River Run and Marksman—due to aflatoxin levels that were detected above the acceptable limit.
    The recalled products were manufactured at Cargill’s Lecompte, La., facility between Dec. 1, 2010, and Dec. 1, 2011.

    Are you *kidding* me? But, we're all supposed to believe nobody's pets have been harmed, and that they were unaware that their tests were in error ... or that it's such a coincidence that all this comes out *after* the USDA discovered the unacceptable levels of aflotoxins. Again? They explain w/in yet another of the most nearly countless recalls:

    Corn delivered to our plant in Lecompte, La., contained a higher-than-acceptable level of a naturally occurring substance called aflatoxin. Aflatoxin occurs because of mold. We test the corn that comes to our plant before it goes into animal feed. But we discovered our tests weren’t working as they should, reported it to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and fixed it. That corn led us to recall some of our River Run and Marksman dog food, because dogs are particularly sensitive to aflatoxin. After further testing and consulting with the FDA, we decided to recall some animal feed made at the same plant between Sept. 6 and Dec. 1, 2011.

    No, Cargill ... that's *not* how it happened: The USDA caught you w/ the corn that was contaminated w/ the aflatoxins, and *then* you claimed your factory's testing and under-reporting of the levels were merely due to the failure of some component of your testing procedure ...
    Like, maybe, truthfulness ...

    They keep on changin' the dates, and have reported product codes that don't even exist ... but, don't worry, folks -- they're surely tryin' to do the right thing, now that they've been flat-out caught.

    The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) has voluntarily retrieved a single production lot of dry dog food due to aflatoxin levels that were detected above the acceptable limit. This product has already been retrieved from store shelves. No illnesses have been reported in association with this production lot to date, and no other Iams pet food products are involved.

    The affected product lot was distributed to a limited number of retailers located in the eastern United States (AL, CT, DE, FL, GA, LA, MD, ME, MS, NC, NH, NJ, NY, PA, SC, VA).

    I'm beginning to wonder if *anything* we feed our animals is gonna be truly safe, but for *certain* suggest everybody finds out where their products were produced at, and I'd demand an immediate refund of any product that was produced under contract by Cargill Animal Nutrition. <-- PERIOD.

    I can't be specific publicly, but have every suspicion that I've isolated yet another product that's killin' birds. I will be performing my *own* tests, as this has, to a large degree, set me back another year. And, although I'm not too happy w/ my Niko right now? I suspect he's suffering from aflatoxins, too. Beyond my own personal losses, I'm far more offended on behalf of those that suffered through this w/ their own flocks ... their heartache, and frustration, as they tried everything to save their birds. All, w/o prejudice, for the sake of Cargill's greed.

    I'd prefer to go to Southern States, as I've always found it to have better prices/quality than tractor supply, but I've gotta go where others drive nowadays ... it's not our local store's fault, and may not even be the result of anything they've done wrong on a corporate level -- everything I've found seems to point straight back to that same plant: Cargill Animal Nutrition's facility in Lecompe, La. Anybody can make mistakes, but their story omits the truth, and puts a spin that sounds so much better ... and, began only *after* the USDA caught 'em w/ the unacceptable corn. At best? This whole situation st!nks.

    The absence of visible mold doesn't eliminate the inclusion of products that were covered in aspergillus, or the toxins this mold produces ... be sure 'n check every product you use, whether it's for your chickens, or other livestock, or your dogs/cats, or even rabbits -- it's all potentially suspect.

    I was having the same problem and really looked into why. Our feed comes out of Purina in Penn. and ships by train to the TS warehouse [or whatever they call it] for final distribution. Trains are not always water tight and in fact can leak quite a bit. In this case it's transport, not product. I've complained to both TS and Purina about this problem many times. If more did the same maybe it would help them find a way to change their practises.

    Anyone with ducks and geese really needs to be heads up on this. Ducks will die first if the levels of the toxins are over 50ppb. As the parts per billion go up, you'll lose geese next, then turkeys and finally your chickens. It has to be pretty high for the chickens to be effected. Now here's another thought most seem to be missing. These same grains are making their way into our food as well. Baby food. Think about that for a minute. Animals raised for slaughter are eating this feed, and from what I've been reading these toxins seem to have a cumulative effect in the human body. Anyone who knows history should be thinking about Salem, Mass. and the witch trials so long ago. The hysteria was caused by an aflatoxin on the rye they harvested for their bread. Ergot, the toxin found on the rye grains then, is a lot like what we know as LSD.

    This is the very scenario experienced recently, in one of quite a few events that I strongly suspect to have been the result of aflatoxin poisoning. In this specific case? They suspected a corn they had on hand, but I still suspect that they may have fed recalled feed.

    And, my main concern is that there's corporate decisions bein' made to obscure the truth, and deny the damages they've caused, knowing that most will never become aware of the recalls, or make the connection between the deaths of their flocks/pets and the aflatoxins their feed/food contained (i.e. Iams claimed only one product was involved in an earlier release, yet the FDA's Reference ID included over twenty products from Eukanuba and Iams, sequentially numbered, and all w/ the same exact dates on the report ...

    Anybody wanna place bets as to which company/facility produced 'em under contract?

    So, I've finished one year, and started another, collecting the dead from my flock, and culling one more. Guess I'll go see how they're doin' now that it's almost daylight ...

    Happy New Year ~'-)

    For a better understanding of the threats aflatoxins pose to your livestock, pets, flocks and family?
    >> peck here << to see AFLATOXINS : Occurrence and Health Risks,
    from Cornell University's Department of Animal Science.



    Mycotoxins have different effects on the various organs and in the animal productivity and health. Below is a simple explanation of the terms that will be used to describe the effects of mycotoxins in animals:


    Immunosuppression:
    when one or more functions of the immune system are suppressed, resulting in an impaired resistance to infectious agents.

    Hematopoietic Effects:
    hematopoiesis refers to the production of all types of bloods cells from the primitive cells (stem cells) in the bone marrow. The dysfunction of hematopoiesis leads firstly to the decrease of production of neutrophils (white cells that help the cell to kill and digest microorganisms engulfed by phagocytosis), thus perturbing the animals’ immune system and subsequently to the decrease of red blood cells, leading to anemia.

    Hepatotoxic Effects:
    hepatotoxicity refers to liver damage caused by toxic substances.

    Nephrotoxic Effects:
    nephrotoxicity refers to kidney damage caused by toxic substances. Nephropathy is the term used to describe kidney inflammation.

    Reproductive Effects:
    involve all the negative impacts in the reproductive system and in reproduction.

    Teratogenic Effects:
    refer to birth defects, both structural and functional, caused to the newborn.

    Neurotoxic Effects:
    when the nervous system is affected.

    Carcinogenic Effects:
    involve the promotion of cancer and of the spread of cancer cells.

    Dermal Effects:
    Dermal toxicity involves all the damage caused to the skin by toxic substances.

    Gastro-intestinal Effects:
    involve all the effects which are caused in the gastro-intestinal tract.

    Performance Effects:
    involve the changes in performance that can be detected by lower daily weight gain, poor feed conversion rates, lower production (eggs, milk) and decreased feed intake.

    Pathological Effects:
    pathology refers to the study of organs in order to examine the effects of a certain disease. Changes from the normal appearance of a certain organ are known as pathological changes.

    Residues:
    refer to the mycotoxin carry-over into blood and muscles which may and often lead to residues in animal products such as meat and eggs.
