Thiram-contaminated poultry feed caused soft egg shells, depressed growth and leg abnormalities in about 1 million birds. Corn previously treated with thiram and colored red was the source of the contamination as detected by gas chromatography and mass spectroscopy examinations. Standardized color-recognition for treated grain products could have avoided this situation and speaks to the international adoption of such standards.
