Imagine: There Was A Time When US-Aid Meant Pig-Fat

64-year-old tub of lard is still edible

A GERMAN pensioner who had kept a tub of lard in his cupboard for 64 years, took it to authorities who pronounced it very much fit for consumption – if a little tasteless.

Retired chemist Hans Feldmeier, 87, said he had received the pig fat as a student in 1948 near the northern city of Rostock as part of the post-war US aid program.
