Leonard's cattle have been contaminated by the RAAF's use of Fire Fighting Foams known as Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF)
The foam contains toxic Perfluoroalkyl Substances which have been linked to serious health problems.
The Department of Primary Industries has advised Len and his family not to eat the contaminated beef, however they have said that it is alright to sell to other people outside of the RED ZONE for consumption.
The logic from the Department of Primary Industries is that peoples concentrations of PFAS outside the Red Zone is lower and therefor does not pose a significant health risk.
