Dioxins in German food
Many look at China as a high risk of contamination but Germany apparently has a problem too.
What will this do to consumer confidence in North America?
German authorities have stopped more than 4,700 farms from selling their meat and eggs amid a growing scandal over animal feed contaminated with cancer-causing chemicals that is also affecting exports.
Re: Dioxins in German food
The Germans don't have as much authoirty in their USDA and FDA equivalents. When I was stationed in Germany in the early '80s there was a big scandal because a bunch of sausage had kangaroo meat in it. Over time, Ive noticve enough issues that I am less than fully impressed with German food safety. I think the deal is that whereas in the U.S., violaters seem to try to get away with not quite living up to the standards, in some parts of the world they seem to deliberately be willing to adulterate food products. While neither is defensible, the one who conscioulsy adulterates the food with some foreight substance grates on my nerves a bit more.
