This is being "ignored"
On July 4, 2008 I listened to Louise Schiavone on Lou Dobss in which she spoke of the Salmonella outbreaks though out the United States coming from Mexico, although she said they haven’t identified the source. She also said she had spoken to a woman in, I believe it was Minnesota who had Salmonella and “never ate a tomato”.
Within the following you will understand my suspicion as to just where the SALMONELLA (and possible prior E-COLI outbreaks) may be coming from, Tlaxcala, Mexico in the form of a bio-pesticide, bio-insecticide or biofungicide etc.(fungus or bacteria). In the case of the company where my son used to work and Tlaxcala, Mexico; this company has a fermentation/manufacturing plant of bio-pesticides, bio-insecticides or biofungicides etc.(fungus or bacteria) that are products tested, sold and “used” on our crops and insects in the United States.
When a bio-pesticide, bio-insecticide or biofungicide etc. is going through review by the EPA for registration, or re-registration the EPA either denies the submission or accepts it.
In 1999 the company my son worked for had requested a registration from the EPA (which had been previously registered by the EPA) for a “new active ingredient”. Full registration was denied and instead the company only received a "Conditional Time-Limited " Registration [ATTACHED] as the EPA themselves found fault with; Storage stability, Manufacturing process and it was questioned why fish, shrimp and honey bees died.
The "Conditional Time-Limited " Registration” issued on June 20, 2000 to the company by the EPA - OFFICE OF PESTICIDE PROGRAMS -PESTICIDES AND POLLUTION PREVENTION DIVISION, FORM 8570?6 states” "After fermentation and prior to further process, each batch must be tested for the following microbial contaminates and have levels below those listed "
"E. COLI/COLIFORM BACTERIA "
"SALMONELLA " "SHIGELLA "
The above was addressed in my June of 2007 letter to Congressman Waxman with no response.[ATTACHED]. I have also addressed Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey and Congressman Dan Lungren in letters and in person (as have others) concerning the safety to human health and the environment as well as the question of homeland security. Should you wish to view the letters I would be more than happy to send them to you
It is extremely concerning why the company, who one would believe would be very careful in sending the EPA an UNCONTAMINATED submission for approval for registration (which it appears was contaminated), would not be questioned with respect to contamination in their products or product candidates that are being tested and sold to be used on our crops and used for insect control.
My son also became sick in 1999 while working for this company and despite 4 surgeries (the first in 1999 and the last in 2006), the loss of an intact immune system and over $333,000 worth of medical bills (as of 2005) he has never regained his health as it was before he began employment with the company.
"Why " should anyone, with the advanced technology this century has, have to be afraid to be employed, eat agricultural crops, drink water and breath the air in the United States of America? Should you wish to contact me I can be reached at [PHONE # OMITTED]. There is “so much more”.
