FDA Statement on Western Sugar Cooperative Voluntary Recall of Beet Pulp and Tailings

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, in close coordination with the Wyoming Department of Agriculture (WDA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), has been working to address a tragic accident that occurred at the Western Sugar Cooperative's Lovell, Wyo., manufacturing facility on Jan. 4, 2014. The FDA has confirmed that no sugar or molasses manufactured by Western Sugar Cooperative has been distributed for human consumption since the accident occurred. The company has agreed to destroy all products manufactured for human consumption during this time. During the period of Jan. 4 to Jan. 16, the company also produced beet by-products (beet pulp, beet pellets and tailings) for animal consumption. Some of the beet pulp and tailings were distributed to local cattle operations as livestock feed and may have been fed to cattle. None of the beet pellets were distributed. No feed products were distributed after Jan. 11, 2014.
