FEDS SAY STOCKPILE CANNED TUNA – As more countries mobilize to prepare for potential outbreaks of bird flu, U.S. officials are telling Americans to stockpile canned tuna! … Leavitt told the conference audience, “When you go to the store and buy three cans of tuna, buy a fourth and put it under the bed. After four to six months, you’ll have a few of weeks of food.” (He also recommended stockpiling powdered milk.)….
Clearly, it would have been more politically correct for a government spokesman to include other canned fish in his recommendations.
