http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18405363/ 38 poultry farms in Indiana given tainted feed
This was bound to happen sooner or later. Looks like tainted poultry feed was fed to chickens, some of which may have entered the food supply for humans. Another reason to boycott these companies and demand an overhaul of the entire system.
A quote from the article: " The agencies also said there was a “low-risk” to humans and no food recalls were expected at this time. They are uncertain how many chickens were involved, how many entered the food supply or where they went."
It's good to know that it is low risk to humans, but there is no way of knowing who might have had some type of reaction from eating tainted chicken since no one was really looking for the melamine at the time.
Plus, I have a hard time really believing there is no effect on humans. From the beginning of this whole mess, there have been all kinds of lies told to consumers. It's hard to trust anything right now in this industry.
