Industrial chemical found in Ohio feed

A Toledo manufacturer added the same industrial chemicals that sickened and killed pets nationwide to an ingredient used in livestock and fish feeds, federal officials announced Wednesday.
It’s the first time a U.S. company has been accused of intentionally adding the chemicals to animal or human food, and prompted recalls yesterday of the fish and shrimp feed but not that intended for livestock.
“We believed we were making a compliant product,” John Valley, executive vice president of Tembec BTLSR Inc., told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review yesterday.
