considering the very rigorous standards that the eu impose these days this story is just disgraceful as well as a slap in the face.
hundreds of tons of british food aid shipped to america for starving hurricane katrina survivors is to be burned.
us red tape is stopping it from reaching hungry evacuees.
instead tons of the badly needed nato ration packs, the same as those eaten by british troops in iraq, has been condemned as unfit for human consumption.
and unless the bureaucratic mess is cleared up soon it could be sent for incineration.
one british aid worker last night called the move "sickening senselessness" and said furious colleagues were "spitting blood".
the food, which cost british taxpayers millions, is sitting idle in a huge warehouse after the food and drug agency recalled it when it had already left to be distributed. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/tm_obje...name_page.html
