The Nation

March 17, 1986

Arkansas health officials ordered the recall of several thousand gallons of milk and cottage cheese in Arkansas and Oklahoma, based on tests indicating that dairy animals were fed contaminated feed. The recalls are the latest in a series that began more than a week ago, when Arkansas Health Department officials learned that dairy cattle in northwest Arkansas had been given feed contaminated with the pesticide heptachlor, which has caused cancer in test rats. A U.S. Department of Agriculture task force formed to study the contamination in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri is scheduled to begin work Tuesday in Arkansas.
