The economy, health and agriculture ministers announced Monday they would work together to contain a possible wheat crisis after studies released last week showed high levels of carcinogenic contamination.Monday's conference comes on the heels of a public dispute between the health and economy minsters after the latter refuted studies presented by Abu Faour that there is an alarming presence of contaminated wheat at the port, claimed ministerial jurisdiction over the matter and declared that his ministry's tests demonstrated otherwise.The difference in results between thee economy and health ministries is due to differences in test samples, according to Abu Faour.
