Archer Daniels Midland Co. (ADM) said it discovered trace amount of Salmonella in soybean meal at its facility in Straubing, Germany. The contamination was discovered at part of the company’s regular testing protocol, a spokesman said, and the company has been recalling products since March 1. “We are conducting an in-depth investigation. Additionally, we also treat all meal leaving the Straubing facility to prevent and destroy any potential live Salmonella,” a statement from the company said. “We have carefully implemented all instructions from the Bavarian authorities. All measures prescribed by the authorities are now in force and we continue to work closely with them. “We deeply regret the incident and are committed to resolving this problem with minimal disruption to our customers.” ADM said it could not comment on the customers affected by the recall. A report said ADM had recalled about 1,000 tons of soybean meal that had been delivered to 70 farms in Bavaria. A similar Salmonella contamination event occurred at the same facility in late 2017.
