July 19, 1999
That “grown in America” food you have been eating may have been “grown” somewhere else, thanks to a process called “blending” — the mixing of domestic and foreign products. After all, you may justifiably be concerned about mad cow disease in Britain, dioxin in beef and poultry from Belgium, or contaminated raspberries from Guatemala, but the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) does not give you a choice in the matter. Blending removes that choice. A.H. “Chico” Denis, who runs a slaughter plant in San Angelo, Tex., admitted at a House subcommittee hearing that federal authorities must go on investigating imported meat for safety’s sake. But just because it is blended with American meat, they should not stamp it with the USDA shield, he said, because that leads the public to believe those products are American when they are not.
