Health Director Maurice Reizen said.
"But of course it is a concern."
The memo cited 31 sheep sent to a
west Michigan slaughterhouse recen-
tly, most of them from a Fremont far-
mer who is being paid more than $2,000
a day by the state to hold PBB-tainted
cows at the same farm where he raises
sheep, the newspaper said.
TWENTY-NINE of the 31 sheep
tested were found to have more than 20
parts per billion of PBB set by the
Legislature as being a "safe" level for
human consumption.
The memo also said Department of
Natural Resources officials are not
sure the sheep were contaminated
because they were on the same farm as
the sick cows, the newspaper said.
If these sheep were not contaminated
through close contact with the sick
cows, the News says the memo says,
"the state may be faced with a much
bigger PBB problem than ever was
suspected."
THE MEMO, written by Assistant At-
torney General Stewart Freeman also
said a burial pit constructed near Mio in
Oscoda County "lacks sufficient
capacity to handle all the animals,
living and dead, now under DNR con-
trol," the News said.
State officials Tuesday night began
burying carcasses of the PBB-
contaminated animals at the clay-lined
pit after receiving approval from the
Michigan Supreme Court.
Reizen theorized the new PBB con-
tamination may be coming from the
animals grazing on pasture that had
been fertilized with the manure of
previously exposed animals, the
newspaper said.
