"The California Department of Food and Agriculture imposed the quarantine [on Ceres hog farm] Thursday after records from Diamond Pet Food's Lathrop facility showed it sold salvage pet food to the farm for pig feed earlier this month" Olivia Munoz, AP 04-20-07 appearing SFChronicle.

Question: Is it perfectly legal to sell any and / or all of the recalled pet food to livestock farmers? The above-referenced article notes that "California offials are not inspecting any other farms."

Question: Is it legal for Ceres, or any other hog farmer to sell pigs with melamine in their urine, pigs determined unsafe for humans to consume, to pet food manufacturers?

Uh-oh.
