    My mother just called me...to tell me she saw thin in the news...so I looked it up..here is what I found out.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An estimated 6,000 hogs from New York to California were likely given feed containing melamine, a chemical used in plastics and fertilizer, the U.S. Agriculture Department said Thursday. USDA also said it believed a poultry feed mill in Missouri may have purchased contaminated feed.
    I sure hope no one has this feed....is NOTHING SAFE ANYMORE??????

    I really wish they would give out a list of products. :mad: I'm feeding organic layer feed from a near by producer, but don't you think it would make sense to let people know what products are affected so they are not used?!?!?!
