They are obviously twisting this one. The pet food contamination issue
has already run its course in the US. What was the contaminant?

Subject: [ RadSafe ] ABC (aus) 7;30 Report
Members and Colleagues may be interested in an Australian TV current
affair document. On the ABC 7:30 report of Monday Jan 12 there was a
report on pet food. The named product was alleged to be a cause of a
neurological disease in cats. What has this got to do with
radiation? The answer is everything because the product was
subjected to gamma irradiation before entry into Australia.
The neurological disorder is well demonstrated. To blame this on no
evidence, other then the well understood anti-nuclear prejudice of
the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, as a consequence of gamma
irradiation, is clearly a travesty.
