melamine...not just for puppies and kitties anymore

go read this post up at goldy's....the person who blew the lid on michael "you're doing a heck of a job brownie" brown's job qualifications for fema by being involved in arabian horse shows.
through the salvaging practice, melamine-tainted pet food has likely contaminated america’s livestock for as long as it has been killing and sickening america’s pets — as far back as august of 2006, or even earlier. and while it may seem alarmist to suggest without absolute proof that americans have been eating melamine-tainted pork, chicken and farm-raised fish for the better part of a year, the fda and usda seem to be preparing to brace americans for the worst. in an unusual, saturday afternoon joint press release, the regulators tasked with protecting the safety of our nation’s food supply go to convoluted lengths to reassure the public that eating melamine-tainted pork is perfectly safe.

and it gets worse. tomorrow the new york times will report from china, detailing how nitrogen-rich melamine scrap, produced from coal, is routinely ground into powder and mixed into low-grade wheat, corn, soybean or other proteins to inflate the protein analysis of animal feed.

then get mad. put your zipcode in the little box, click "go" and contact your elected officials.

time to get busy.
