This Is NOT Good News!

An industrial chemical linked to kidney failure in dogs and cats has
found its way into the human food supply chain. California officials
quarantined 1,500 animals at the American Hog Farm and are tracking
who purchased nearly 100 hogs from the farm this month, when the
animals' feed included pet food that had been tainted with melamine .

In addition, 26 hogs were sold and slaughtered at an unnamed
processing plant in northern California . Federal authorities
quarantined those unprocessed carcasses at that plant, but state
officials expect to identify more California processing plants that
purchased the hogs.

American Hog Farm, a specialty slaughterhouse in Ceres, Calif., sells
whole hogs suitable for backyard barbecues to celebrate weddings,
retirements, graduations, and other festive events.

A man who answered the phone at American Hog Farm and who identified
himself as one of its owners said yesterday it is premature to
comment since the federal investigation continues.

Bummer! pork's too dangerous to eat! Well, you could do chicken for a while. (Be careful with your cleanliness, wouldn't want any salmonells.) Or maybe beef. (Nobody's mentioned Mad Cow Disease for a while.) Or there's always good old safe vegetables. (Wash well. E. coli, you know.)
