melamine: it’s not just for fido and fluffy anymore

I have to admit, when it was revealed that the source of the pet food contamination was likely imported grain products, I saw this coming:

Health officials are investigating whether humans may have consumed pork from animals that ate feed containing a chemical linked to a recall of pet foods, the Food and Drug Administration said Tuesday.

As far as I’m concerned, when we talk “homeland security,” nothing could be more important than securing the country’s food supply—against enemies foreign or capitalist—but the Bush Administration certainly doesn’t have the interest, and the FDA probably doesn’t have the resources.
