ADM horse feed contaminated with monensin!

I have a half a bag of alfalfa pellets made by ADM sitting in my feed room.

Does anyone know what batches were contaminated?
According to lab results, ADM Patriot Performance, ADM Patriot Junior, and ADM Alliance Nutrition 12% have tested positive for monensin.

But are there others? How do I know if my bag is contaminated?

Well if you fed the other half then it wouldn't matter would it?

Since ADM isn't taking responsibility, it looks like finding that information will be quite the scavenger hunt. Maybe contact the lab that ran the samples, or the barn owner?

This is so disappointing and sad and scary. We put so much trust in these companies. I've used ADM products for a long time but I think I'm done. For them to be somewhat insensitive to this is disheartening.

They should recall the feed instead of denying there is a problem! I wish they would admit which batches were affected. I think I might be okay as alfalfa doesn't grow in Georgia so it may have been packaged in a different state, rather than at the plant affected.
