The issue of irradiating mail isn't a postal worker issue. Allan's
concern is that they were irradiating some of the mail in the dc area
(mostly congressional mail). However, this has stopped because it
didn't accomplish what it set out to do, it ruined the mail and it
caused toxic chemical release. Congress people and their employees
were mostly getting their mail irradiated and there were so many
complaints about the chemical smell and the ruined mail that hearings
were held and generally, the post office stopped.
Since Allan farms near dc his fear is that his seeds could have been
irradiated. I understand the process was so destructive of packaging
that you would have known by the brittle paper.
