Greed is everywhere; human life is immaterial.

7 January, 2011

The tests at the plant [Harles und Jentzsch] in northern Germany where the contamination happened revealed levels of dioxin at 77 times the permitted level.


Initially the scare was confined to Germany, but then it emerged that a batch of affected eggs had been exported to the Netherlands for processing and from there to Britain.


“The first indications point to a high level of illegal activity,” said a spokesman for German Agriculture Minister Ilse Aigner on Friday.

“There are indications that the company was not even officially registered, in order not to expose itself to official controls,” he added.

A doctor from the town of Havixbeck, near Munster, has lodged a criminal complaint of attempted murder and severe injury against Harles und Jentzsch, saying the company had acted out of greed.
