Dioxin Found in Italian Mozzarella Milk

ROME (March 21) - Makers of Italy's prized buffalo mozzarella took out full-page ads in Italian newspapers Friday assuring consumers that their cheese was safe after high levels of dioxin were found in some samples of buffalo milk.

The tainted products came from a few buffalo dairies in the southern Campania region, whose reputation as a top agricultural producer has already been tarnished by a months-old garbage crisis that has fueled fears of food contamination.
Over the past week, Italian authorities have searched dozens of buffalo dairies and seized milk samples for tests after higher-than-permitted levels of dioxin were discovered in products from 29 mozzarella makers, news reports said.

Prosecutors in Naples have placed 109 people under investigation in connection with the probe, on suspicion of fraud and food poisoning, the ANSA news agency reported.

On Friday, the consortium of buffalo mozzarella makers in Campania took out full-page ads in La Repubblica and other national newspapers outlining the system of controls in place for its top-branded mozzarella, which carries the designation DOP, meaning it has certain protection and quality guarantees.

Health officials, police, agricultural and cheese authorities all guarantee the safe production of DOP mozzarella, the ad said, adding that the dairies involved in the police seizures were not members of the consortium.

This is what Homer promised Bart and Lisa if their parent-teacher conferences went well for one and bad for the other.
