Hog farm quarantined

The American Hog Farm, a 1500-animal facility in Ceres, CA, has been quarantined by the California Department of Food and Agriculture.

The reason is the presence of the chemical melamine in pig urine that was revealed during lab tests. Melamine became a topic of much discussion in early 2007, when veterinary scientists determined it to be the cause of hundreds of pet deaths, because of pet food contamination.

Although State Public Health Officer Dr. Mark Horton says that evidence suggests a minimal health risk to people who have consumed pork purchased from these facilities, the California Department of Health Services (CDHS) recommends that individuals who purchased hogs from the American Hog Farm after April 3, 2007 not consume the product until further notice.
