The FBI catches crooked dairymen in a classic sting
operation.

FBI, USDA, AND FDA OPERATION

Dozens of Louisiana and Mississippi dairy farmers and milk
truck drivers have been caught in a federal sting operation
involving watered-down, salted milk.

The investigation began about eight months ago and involves
as many as 60 people in the dairy industry.

Some dairymen were allegedly caught on hidden video cameras
watering down their milk and adding salt to disguise the
water's presence. Some were also caught making hush-money
payoffs to truckers who transport milk from farms to
processors.

A BIGGER CRIME

Jerome Walker, president of the Louisiana Milk Producers
Association, defended the criminal activity by saying:

"I don't think it's any health threat to anybody. If dairy
farmers were paid the amount of money needed to cover their
expenses, this would never have happened. It's just a sad
situation."

GOT INTEGRITY?
