Food Shelf Venison To Be Destroyed

State Agriculture Department Commissioner Gene Hugoson has directed Minnesota food shelves to destroy any venison they have because it may contain lead. He suggested to consumers that if they have food shelf venison, they should throw it away. Officials say lab tests have confirmed varying amounts of lead fragments in venison samples collected from food shelves around the state. Hugoson said one person could get a high dose of lead while someone else eating the same venison get none at all. The Ag Commissioner said there's no way to tell which part of the animal has been affected.
