A Senate panel held hearings into the tainted pet food that terrified owners of cats and dogs last month. It turns out that pet owners were not the only ones worried. The Centers for Disease Control were not convinced that the toxins in imported wheat gluten were confined to animal feed so they went on alert to see if humans were eating bad gluten too. CBS' Sharyl Attkisson reassured us that the feared spike in human kidney failure never materialized: "The human food ultimately tested clean."
In California, the food police turn out not to be government regulators but consumers. ABC's Miguel Marquez told us that the Food & Drug Administration has certified that milk from dairy cows injected by Monsanto's artificial RBST hormone is safe to drink. Milk drinkers are not convinced. Enough consumers are now willing to pay the increased cost of hormone-free milk that the Golden State's grocery chains will now require dairy farmers to renounce the yield-enhancing shots.
