Your morning Chinese food contamination update: new developments, widening crisis

UPDATE:BREAKING: Americans ate 3 million melamine-tainted chickens!

In a conference call with media this afternoon, USDA Assistant Administrator Kenneth Petersen revealed that as many as 3 million chickens, contaminated with melamine from a single Indiana feed mill, have already been slaughtered, distributed and eaten. An additional 100,000 breeder chickens are currently being voluntarily quarantined by farmers.

Well, great. Just great.
