    20 million chickens may have eaten tainted feed

    Poultry must be assessed by government before its processed, USDA says
    Updated: 1 hour, 23 minutes ago

    The U.S. Agriculture Department said on Friday as many as 20 million chickens currently on U.S. farms in several states may have been fed contaminated feed.

    A USDA official said the birds must be held until the government can complete a risk assessment to determine if they can be processed. The results could come as early as Monday.

    The birds were among those believed to have been given contaminated feed with pet food containing melamine, a chemical used in plastics and fertilizer. It is uncertain how many chickens have been processed.

    Why the hell was recalled pet food allowed to be fed to chickens and hogs anyway?

    If the same food was given to "layers," those eggs are already on the grocery shelves.

    Some pet food, while unsuitable for sale for that purpose, was still considered safe for livestock to eat. Its use at hog farms raised the possibility that melamine entered the human food supply.

    The risk to human health posed by the chemical is considered very low. The University of California, Davis, is developing a test to measure melamine levels in tissue, Andrews said.

    Count me in Sis. Up here we have Foster Farms chickens. Not sure how or what they are fed. Hope it is all ok as we just ate one the other night.

    It is high time to end imports of all food products from China. I might say indefinitely as it seems their standards and ours simply may never match up.

    The thing that is scaring me right now is that off and on, my own family, and my daughters roommate (they share meals), and some others we know of have had stomach issues. We had thought that it has been some late season bug, which it still could be, but this all makes me start wondering a lot....

    It is insane to import food from a country we know would like to see nothing better than our demise. I heard the other day that we only inspect 2 percent of the food imported into this country. What about the remaining 98 percent? This is frightening, and must be stopped before we are all dead! We don't know what we are eating anymore.
