3 million broilers fed contaminated feed

Up to 3 million broiler chickens were fed melamine-tainted pet food and then sold on the U.S. market beginning in early February, U.S. health officials said.

The contaminated pet product made its way into poultry feed at 38 Indiana farms, 30 of which produced broiler chickens destined for restaurants and supermarkets, according to officials at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Approximately 2.5 million to 3 million chickens fed contaminated pet food have already been sold.
