Contaminated animal feed again
Original post made by Miles Barne on May 19, 2007
This was a disaster waiting to happen. After all, animal feed mills are generally regarded as dumping grounds for all kinds of garbage: cat and dog carcasses from animal shelters, cancerous tissue and other slaughterhouse discards, and food processing waste. Why the fuss about some slightly toxic Chinese protein powder?
Our government and agribusiness will not protect our food supply, but we can, by purchasing fresh fruits and vegetables grown close to home, at farmers' markets and local food co-ops. And by avoiding garbage-fed meat and dairy products.
