Dioxin cause in German beet pulp found

The dioxin-contaminated animal feed scandal expands in Germany. So far, ten states are affected, as a survey revealed from news agency dpa last week. Meanwhile the search for the cause of the dioxin in animal feed from Saxony-Anhalt is ongoing. In North Rhine-Westphalia the search has resulted in finding a defect gas washer which clears gas for production of sugar. Any residual amounts are now blocked everywhere and cannot be fed. The found levels are low and there is no danger to humans, animals and the environment authorities said. The dioxin was found in sugar beet pulp from a manufacturer in Euskirchen (North Rhine-Westphalia) which exceeded the permitted maximum level.
