Adult female mink were fed diets that contained 2.5 ppm Aroclor 1254, 0.1 or 0.5 ppm 3,4,5,3',4',5'-hexachlorobiphenyl (345 HCB), 2.5 or 5.0 ppm 2,4,5,2',4',5'-hexachlorobiphenyl (245 HCB) or 2,3,6,2',3',6'-hexachlorobiphenyl (236 HCB), or a control diet from 1 mo prior to breeding through parturition. All mink fed 0.5 ppm 345 HCB died within 60 d, while those fed 0.1 ppm showed 50% mortality after 3 mo exposure. Only one stillborn kit was whelped in the Aroclor 1254 group.
