Pigs Quarantined in US Farm Following Melamine Contamination

The melamine contamination of pet food continues to takes it toll in the US. Now a hog farm in the Stanislaus county in Calinfornia //was placed under quarantine following detection of the industrial chemical melamine in pig urine in the farm.

Officials were investigating the hog farm's sales records to determine who may be affected by the quarantine, said Steve Lyle, a CDFA spokesman. The 1,500-animal farm operates as a "custom slaughterhouse," which means it generally does not supply meat to commercial outlets.

Officials urged those who purchased pigs from the farm since April 3 not to consume the product until further notice.

Dr. Mark Horton, the state public health officer, said so far "evidence suggests a minimal health risk to persons w
