    Joint Update: FDA/USDA Trace Adulterated Animal Feed to Poultry
    WASHINGTON, April 30, 2007 – The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have learned that byproducts from pet food manufactured with contaminated wheat gluten imported from China have been used in chicken feed on some farms in the state of Indiana. This information came to light as part of the continuing investigation into imported rice protein concentrate and wheat gluten that have been found to contain melamine and melamine-related compounds.

    At this time, the investigation indicates that approximately 30 broiler poultry farms and eight breeder poultry farms in Indiana received contaminated feed in early February and fed it to poultry within days of receiving it. All of the broilers believed to have been fed contaminated product have since been processed. The breeders that were fed the contaminated product are under voluntary hold by the flock owners.

    As with exposure from hogs fed contaminated pet food and for similar reasons related to the dilution of the contamination, FDA and USDA believe the likelihood of illness after eating chicken fed the contaminated product is very low. Because there is no evidence of harm to humans associated with consumption of chicken fed the contaminated product, no recall of poultry products processed from these animals is being issued. Testing and the joint investigation continue. If any evidence surfaces to indicate there is harm to humans, the appropriate action will be taken.

    Because the poultry being held have been fed adulterated products, USDA cannot knowingly approve products derived from these poultry for human consumption. USDA is offering to compensate producers who euthanize this poultry. USDA is also offering the expertise and assistance of Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) personnel in carrying out depopulation activities, to ensure adherence to Federal and State laws.

    FDA and USDA anticipate that as the investigation continues additional farms will likely be identified that received contaminated feed. As indicated in previous updates, FDA and USDA have also traced contaminated feed to swine farms in several states. The same procedures are being followed in relation to both swine and poultry; animals are being quarantined by state order or voluntarily held by the owners and USDA is offering compensation for depopulation and disposal of both swine and poultry that have been fed contaminated products.

    USDA and FDA continue to conduct a full, comprehensive examination to protect the nation’s food supply and will provide updates as new information is confirmed.

    This same "feed" (wheat gluten) is being consumed daily by folks eating those "Garvey Burgers" and other wheat gluten products. Folks who dont eat red meat but eat wheat gluten products or chicken are putting themselves at risk but dont know it.

    If these products are contaminated with even trace amounts of melatime it can lead to kidney stones, cancer or reproductive damage,or renal failure.

    This can be extended to other gluten products as well.

    Yet another way to control "population growth."

    This is highly suspect.

    Yawl know the U.s. is not too happy with China right now. So ask yourself the question why is Uncle Sam suddenly so concerned about the safety of Chinese imports but continues to sell us cloned, generically modified and other domestically intoxified foods. Man, I am getting tired. I don't know what to eat. Every time I turn around they are messing something up. And now they want to piick on China? Give me a break.

    Besides demonizing China this probably also serves to take attention off the extinction of bees caused by genetically modified corn and chemical pesticides on crops

    Beloved goddes River:

    Good point about China and USA.

    When another country is entertaining war agaisnt another country the first thing they do is plant poisiouness seeds in their own people, and blame it on other countries they are about to do war with, so the people can stop buying from that country and even hate the other country.

    The Master of lies and deception will start the fight and run and hide and watch from afar, and when it is over, will pretend it had nothing to do with it.

    Brother Kadafy said back in the early 80's that the american people are the most mislead people by their own governement.

    i totally agree with the timing of this information can be associated with the China-US conflcit. but we mus be wise enuff to see that that is an irrelevant issue here. so are we to say that if the USA had not brought this out about China then it would be OK to kill and eat chickens? of course not. eating chickens is not the way of the ancients whether the us and china has a battle between one anotha or not. in fact, to those who will see, instead of look, will see that the Goddesses and Gods are delivering a warning to those who are killing and eating the ancient beings.

    and finally, i hope we not thinking china is our friends. becuz as Brotha Elder Amos N. Wilson had always said "black people dont have any friends." and if some people choose to be tempted to aligned themselves with China, allow me to direct their attention to what the chinese are doing in Sudan, Zimbabwe and Zambia and then let me know if yu still got love for them. not to mention that "friends" wouldnt sell yu crack would they? well, why do the chinese set up shop in our hoods and sell us fods with monosodium glutamate(msg) a food additive that has proven to be additictive, cause headaches, dizziness and chest pains in addtion to dampening the brainwaves of our people.

    let us not use an irrelevant conflict as an excuse to keep killing and eating the dead muscles and tendons and guts of ancient beings that had historically been revered.

    That is true. Americans think like chickens. They wake up to a new world everyday.

    No brotha silent ra, I am not advocating the consumption of meat by any means. The benefits of vegetarianism are such that it is not necessary to use deception to trick people into it. Meat is bad without any artificial contamination. It starts out contaminated.

    Nor am I saying the Chinese are our friends. That doesn't mean we have to side with the enemy whose house we live in against the enemy across town. After we finish fighting Amerikkka's enemies what have we ever been left with?
