TAFS has published a new position paper, discussing the pros and cons of a potential relaxation of the feed ban that was introduced in the EU and elsewhere to break the BSE infection cycle. The paper lists key requirements that would need to be met before the feed ban for non-ruminants could be relaxed. As these requirements are currently not met TAFS concludes that maintenance of the ban is the only means to drive the level of risk towards zero.
The paper can be downloaded from the TAFS website at http://www.tafsforum.org/tse.html.
