(NewsTarget) -- Livestock feed manufacturer H.J. Baker & Bro. has issued a recall for supplements sold in nine states that may have been contaminated with cattle remains, a violation of a 1997 ban meant to protect against the spread of mad cow disease.

Samples of two supplements added to dairy cattle feed tested positive for cattle meat and bone meal in a test by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, according to the Connecticut company's president, Mark Hohnbaum. He said he did not know how much of the infected feed was sold.

"This is very concerning to us," said Hohnbaum. "We are very serious about food safety."

Mad cow disease is spread when cattle eat feed containing the nerve or brain tissue of cows infected with the disease. Prior to the ban, cattle were routinely fed parts of other cows to speed growth. Some critics say this practice still regularly occurs.

Hohnbaum says his company is notifying customers in the nine states affected by the voluntary recall, which include Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi and Tennessee.
