FDF welcomes BSE OTM decision

UK - The UK’s Food and Drink Federation has welcomed the government’s decision to accept advice from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) to replace the Over Thirty Months (OTM) rule with BSE testing. The decision will mean meat from cattle over thirty months old will be allowed into the food chain, providing it tests negative for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE). “This regime will bring the UK back into line with fellow Member States by enabling the industry once again to use meat from cattle over thirty months old,” said FDF deputy director general Martin Paterson.
