Millions Have Eaten Chicken Fed Tainted Food

Once it was revealed that the pet food poisoning was the result of a chemical put into the food to artificially raise the protein level, I was sure that this product must have some how been ingested by humans. CNN is now reporting that this is the case.
People have eaten millions of chickens that were given feed tainted with recalled pet food, federal officials said Tuesday, though they said the threat to human health is minimal.

The announcement came after an investigation of chicken farms in Indiana found that 38 of the facilities had given contaminated feed to poultry raised for human consumption, and that 2.5 million to 3 million people ate them.

The officials added that they expect to discover that chickens on possibly hundreds of farms in other states were also given tainted feed.
The United States spends more than all other nations combined on our defense yet we could not keep our pets from dying due to tainted food. This shows how vulnerable we are to unconventional attacks and the need to re-examine our national security priorities.

I would like to know why we sell our wheat and corn to Russia, then for our food we have to import it from China. This is stupidity. The big companies here tell you food that they manufacture is good. I don't believe that.First your pets are poisoned then I quess we are next,why, just to keep the stockholders happy. Remember this, when the middle class is gone so is the good old USA ! NO MORE FOREIGN FOOD FOR ME AND MY FAMILY.
