Ireland recalls pork products after dioxin test

European supermarkets were ordered to clear their shelves of Irish bacon, ham and sausages Sunday after authorities announced that Irish pork products had been tainted with a potentially cancer-causing chemical. Health officials across the continent warned their consumers not to eat Irish pork after the discovery that dioxins had been in some of the pigs' feed for months. Ireland's Food Safety Authority said the dioxin made its way into the food chain after pig feed from a producer was tainted with some sort of industrial oil. While only 10 percent of the country's pig meat was affected, that was processed and mixed in with other meat, resulting in widespread contamination.
