BRUSSELS, Belgium -- Belgian lawmakers were cited as beginning an inquiry
Friday into what caused farm feed to become contaminated with dioxin last
month, leading to a worldwide ban on Belgian food.
The story says that the legislative inquiry must determine how fats
tainted with cancer-causing dioxin could have been delivered to feed
scandal has cost Belgium billions of dollars in trade.
Separately, the story says that Belgian farmers complained that experts
determining which farms can resume deliveries to slaughterhouses are
moving too slowly and urged the new government of Premier Guy Verhofstadt
to replace them.
Tens of thousands of pigs, cows and chickens are languishing in crowded
conditions on Belgian farms. During a recent spell of hot weather, farm
animals suffocated by the thousands in cramped, overheated conditions.
Probably the question we don't want to ask is, why are the animals in
"cramped, overheated consitions."
