Dioxin Scare: German Feed Fat "Contains 77 Times Limit"


www.bbc.co.uk

Newly released test results have revealed much more of a toxic chemical in tainted animal feed than previously thought.

The tests at the plant in northern Germany where the contamination happened revealed levels of dioxin at 77 times the permitted level.

The plant produces fats to be used in industrial processes like paper-making as well as to enrich feeds for animals.

The dioxin-laden industrial substance went into the animal feed ingredient.

Initially the scare was confined to Germany, but then it emerged that a batch of affected eggs had been exported to the Netherlands for proc

This just in on the heels of my "The Beatles Were Terrorists From Saudi Arabia" or "The Real Trouble With Tribbles" thread:

A thread I started after reading of this:

Agents Find "Dangerous" Beetle At L.A. Airport
Officials say the insect was discovered in a shipment of Indian rice arriving with personal effects from Saudi Arabia

LOS ANGELES — U.S. customs officials said on Wednesday they had found a beetle considered one of the world's most dangerous agricultural pests in a shipment of rice arriving at Los Angeles International Airport.
Agricultural specialists with U.S. Customs and Border Protection found an adult khapra beetle, eight larvae and a shed skin in a shipment of Indian rice from Saudi Arabia last week, spokesman Jaime Ruiz said.

The khapra beetle, which is native to India and not currently established in the United States, is considered one of the most destructive pests of grain products and seeds.
"It is endemic to several countries and the reason it is very dangerous is that its life cycle is very long and it goes into all kinds of food grains," Naveeda Mirza, agriculture program manager for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, told Reuters.
"It has several dormant stages. It can go dormant for a long time and then become active again. Its very very hard to get rid of and that's why its very dangerous," Mirza said. "It is one of the top 10 most dangerous pests not established here.

I'm thinking (And I am actually thinking contrary to popular belief) that perhaps we're seeing the beginning of what some may call "Agricultural Terrorism"

Or perhaps it's all a ploy. A scam. A ruse. A diversion. Just another incremental click of the gears in the global totalitarian regime's plan to clamp down on the agriculture industry vis a vis the new food "safety" legislation here at home.

So my comment in a related thread that "At least we didn't feed it to them on purpose" this time was wrong.

Here I was hoping that the chickens were free-ranging and it just got into their diets as an environmental contaminant.

Yeah, I guess we did feed it to them on purpose. Or should I say "they" (you know, that nebulous "they") fed it to them. And so it begins...
