News - Melamine contamination scandal expands to include farmed fish feed

WASHINGTON - Farmed fish were fed meal spiked with an industrial chemical linked to the ongoing recall of pet foods, though the contamination level was probably too low to pose a danger to anyone who may have eaten the fish, federal health officials said Tuesday.

We've had pet food, feed given to pigs, feed given to chickens and now feed given to farmed fish in this scandal. What's next? Only two more areas in the human food chain are left, feed given to cattle and used in processed human foods. Once we get to cattle the other area of concern would be milk.
