  1:33pm Ocean Ray:

On November 9, 1959, Secretary Flemming announced, seventeen days before the Thanksgiving holiday, that some of the 1959 crop of cranberries contained traces of aminotriazole, a weed killer, which had been shown to cause thyroid cancer in rats in laboratory testing. Although the sale of cranberries was not banned, Flemming cautioned that if a housewife didn't know where the berries in a product came from, "to be on the safe side, she doesn't buy".Flemming acknowledged the impact of his announcement prior to the holidays, but added "I don't have any right to sit on information of this kind."

After decreased sales of cranberries during the holiday season, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) determined, in January, 1960, that 99% of the crop had not been contaminated. However, the incident did cause cranberry growers to cease using amitrole as a herbicide, as demanded by the farmers' largest consumer, the Ocean Spray company. Prior to 1959, cranberries were seldom consumed except during Thanksgiving and Christmas, and cranberry juice was available, but not popular. After the disastrous holiday season, Ocean Spray promoted the popularity of the juice, and the production of the berries was increased in the long run.

  1:39pm Ocean Ray:

Elkin introduced Williams to the Sinshimer brothers, owners of Richmond's Tip Top Records and Allen Record Distributors. During the previous decade, Tip Top had released numerous pop and country songs by regional talent. The Sinshimers agreed to release Williams' "Loud Mufflers," but there was a catch. "They said, 'What we really want is a song about cranberries,'" the singer recalls. "Archie Elkin told me that cranberries had been tainted by harmful fertilizer and there wouldn't be any for Thanksgiving or the Christmas season. ... It wasn't my idea."

Williams didn't even write "Cranberry Blues" until the group was in the car on the way to record in the makeshift studio in the back of Elkin's store. "I wrote the song out on a scratch pad. ... Never played it till we got to the studio."
