Irish committee continues to examine pork crisis

22-01-2009 | |

The Oireachtas Agriculture Committee, investigating the Irish pork scare of last year has heard that the feed at the centre of the recent pork crisis came from a food recycler operating to a much lower level of regulatory control than its members.

The group representing the majority of the country’s commercial animal feed manufacturers made the claim. Dr Pat Shiels of the Irish Grain and Feed Association also said any report into the scare would fail the consumer if it does not look beyond the operator in question and include all components in the feed and food chain.
