Description
 
More than 5 million cattle across Europe have been killed to stop the spread of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), commonly called mad cow disease. Found in 26 countries, including Canada & the U.S., BSE is believed to spread through animal feed that contains protein from BSE-infected animals. Consuming meat from infected cattle has also been linked to the deaths of about 150 people worldwide. In 1997, the FDA issued a feed-ban rule prohibiting certain animal protein (prohibited material) in feed for cattle & other ruminant animals. FDA & 38 states inspect firms in the feed industry to enforce this critical firewall against BSE. This report looks at FDAs efforts to ensure industry compliance with the feed ban & protect U.S. cattle. Illus.
