    Thought this was imortant enough (and may affect many individuals) to have its own thread.

    Millions of chickens are now being held back from sale due to the pet food poisonings. They say they will list the affected chicken feed brands and states soon. This may be bad news for some here :|.

    Here's the link:

    From the article:
    "It is time to grant the FDA and other food safety agencies clear mandatory recall and inspection authority," she said in a statement. "These initial steps would help create a modern, comprehensive food safety agency that will be capable of protecting our food supply and restoring consumer confidence."

    I see this as more regulation excuses to interfere with the smaller farmer/chicken owner as well as the larger facilities.​
