EU: Brussels extends meat-and-bone meal ban
The present suspension of the use of meat and bone meal in animal feed for pigs and poultry is to continue indefinitely, agriculture ministers of the 15 EU countries agreed yesterday (Tuesday). Ministers also barred "cannibalism" in animal feed and insisted that animal by-products could only be used in animal feed if they came from animals fit for human consumption. Agreement was also reached on interim requirements for imports of live cattle and animal products from certain third countries. European consumer affairs Commissioner David Byrne said the agreements were "a major step towards preventing feed-borne food crises such as BSE and dioxin contamination."
