The TAFS forum has published a new White Paper entitled "Campylobacter - The role of poultry meat in Campylobacter epidemiology and mitigation measures along the food chain".
The aim of this paper is to present a fair appraisal of the current knowledge regarding epidemiology and intervention measures along the poultry food chain and to provide guidance for risk management decisions. It is not intended to promote or endorse any particular intervention strategy.
See https://tafsforum.org/other-topics.html for more details.
In addition to the recently published full position paper on a potential relaxation of the feed ban, TAFS has posted today a shortened and simplified version for those who only want to know about the key arguments and take home message. As the full version, the short one is available at http://www.tafsforum.org/tse.html.
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.
