6,000 hogs may have eaten tainted feed: USDA

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An estimated 6,000 hogs from New York to California were likely given feed containing melamine, a chemical used in plastics and fertilizer, the U.S. Agriculture Department said Thursday.

A USDA official said that so far states have quarantined one farm each in South Carolina, New York, North Carolina and California.

Other states affected are Kansas, Oklahoma and Utah.
An estimated 105 million hogs are slaughtered in the United States each year, according to USDA figures.

"We're obviously tracking each farm and, frankly, each hog," the USDA official said.

USDA also said it believed a poultry feed mill in Missouri may have purchased contaminated feed.States have the authority to quarantine farms and to test animals. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has authority over feed, while USDA oversees products being sold.

The discovery of feed rations containing pet food tainted with melamine so far has not caused concern among importers of U.S. pork.

"We have not gotten any countries stopping our shipments yet," said Sally Klusaritz, a spokeswoman with USDA's Foreign Agricultural Service.

U.S. health officials said on Wednesday they are looking at whether humans may have consumed food containing melamine.
