Introduction: Polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs) have been widely used as flame retardants in industrial and consumer products. In 1973, PBBs accidentally entered the food chain in Michigan, when Firemaster FF-1, a commercial flame retardant, was inadvertently substituted for magnesium oxide used as a supplement in the formulation of cattle feed (1). Ten to twenty bags, 50 lb each, of PBBs were mixed into feeds that were widely distributed to Michigan farmers, and consumed by a large number of farm animals. Three feed preparatio; containing different concentrations of PBBs appeared initially to be involved Feed No. 405, 2.4 ppm;t No. 410, 1790 ppm; and No. 407, 4300 ppm (2). A concentration as high as 13,500 ppm of polybrominated biphenyls was also cited (3).
