Arkansas/MS situation

  Has anyone heard any news in the last few days regarding the
  chicken/catfish/eggs that were fed the contaminated feed in Arkansas?  I
  have heard rumors ("a friend of a friend who works in lab X told me...")
  that the quarantine has been released, and that no TCDD levels above 1
  ppt were found...
  Another question: Any guess whether the FDA/USDA will start mandating
  testing for dioxin on a regular basis?  It seems like it would be a good
  idea, but the Arkansas situation got remarkably little attention outside
  of those of us who subscribe to this list, and there was a pretty severe
  backlash from farmers and elected officials.  Does anybody have any hard
  info. on this?
