11th January 2011, Comments 0 comments

German authorities have detected high levels of toxic dioxin in pork from a farm banned from selling since last week's scare, the consumer protection ministry in the state of Lower Saxony said Tuesday.

"A test on the meat has shown high levels of dioxin content," a ministry spokesman told AFP. "The animals must be slaughtered and will then be incinerated."
