Poison feed corn from Texas

This might be old news but I thought it might be of interest to animal owners anyway.

Dennis! I had not heard this before and would like to know something about it. It says that the Texas Feed and Fertilizer agency will put a warning lable on it if it has too high a levels of this stuff and it's not to be fed to horses. Why don't they just take the bad stuff off the market? This is scary to me. There are two horses next door that I help take care of when the folks are out of town and I've become pretty attached to them. Do I need to tell my neighbors to only buy feed that is not from Austin, Kerrville, Waco or Victoria?

I am going to find out as much as I can about where the feed comes from that we use and where they get their corn products. Also am going to switch to grains until I am sure of my feed supply.
LH has a great solution

Maggie that problem in corn can happen anywhere in the country, not just TX, it jsut sounds like testing has showed they've discovered it in this years crop. If it was in my area and I had horses I would go to an alternative feed like oats, or barley. Or commerciallly produced and tested sweet feed just to be safe

Dennis and LH, thanks for the advice. I'll tell my neighbors about this. :)
