- Emergency FLASH***
Bovine Growth Hormone Disaster

Mark down this date, 12/19/03. This very well be the moment that ended the use of genetically
engineered foods in America's food.

Milk and Dairy products sold in America may have been seriously contaminated. Immediately pour
all milk down the drain. What's wrong? FDA's not talking. Just to be safe, immediately discard all of your dairy products.

Monsanto has experienced a big problem with their genetically engineered bovine growth hormone. They've issued a press release indicating that Posilac (rbGH, rbST) will be experiencing restricted deliveries and only limited supplies will be available to farmers.

In an embargoed press release (Monsanto would not allow this information to be released until noon (CST) of December 19, 2003), Monsanto wrote regarding their manufacturing facility:

"They are making manufacturing corrections and improvements to their plant..."

This is Monsanto's convoluted way of saying, "OOPS!"

What does that say for biotechnology?

I called FDA on Friday afternoon, but nobody is talking. I spoke with the Commissioner's office.
I left messages for Dr. Steven Sundlov, director of FDA's investigative branch, Center for Veterinary Medicine. I spoke with Linda Tollifson's office. Linda actually runs things at CVM. Down the chain of command went my phone calls. I spoke to Lynn Post, who said:
"We knew there's a problem. We don't know the details. We don't have all the information at this time."

Spoken like a politician. Thanks to all the zippermouths who seem more interested in protecting Monsanto than the American people, who continue to drink genetically enginered milk.

After speaking with FDA's press office, I've filed a Freedom of Information Act Request (FOIA). Will I get to the truth? You bet. One way or another...
