Contaminated manure

I have just read this article and though I had better share it...http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2008/jun/29/food.agriculture

For once I am actually very glad that I didn't manage to manure anything last year.

I only accept manure from known sources because aside from the risks highlighted in this link it can be a real pain for bringing new varieties of weeds to your plot. I'm lucky enough to have a friend with a small holding who willingly lets me take it whenever I want but I know not everyone is that lucky! I'd say - always check the pastures for weeds on the farm it's coming from and have a good idea of the methods that they employ.

That is awful! Really awful. I'd be interested to see what damage it does.
