LANGENHORN, GERMANY - JANUARY 13: Pigs look out from their pen at the Ebsen organic farm on January 13, 2011 in Langenhorn, Germany. Organic foods retailers are reporting a surge in demand following the recent dioxin contamination scandal sparked by the announcement by the German company Harles and Jentzsch that some of the fatty proteins it had supplied to animals feeds producers was tainted with dioxin. German authorities responded by barring 4,700 mostly poultry and hog farms from selling their products until laboratory tests could guarantee them dioxin free. Investigators are meanwhile pursuing a criminal investigation against the leading employees at Harles and Jentzsch. Organic farms have thus far been immune from the scandal since they use no industrially-produced animal feed. (Photo by Joern Pollex/Getty Images) less
