South Korea’s Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry has said that cattle fed food scraps containing animal products are not at risk of contracting bovine spongiform encephaly (BSE).

The ministry’s panel, composed of quarantine experts, concluded cows fed food scraps are “safe”.

“We have found no problem feeding leftovers to cattle,” said Kim Ok-kyung, head of the National Veterinary Research and Quarantine Service.
