Ministers plan tough BSE tests

UK - The government will promise tough penalties for farmers or abattoirs which breach planned new BSE testing rules for cattle, it emerged yesterday. The Food Standards Agency has recommended that the measure which keeps most animals over 30 months old out of food production should be lifted but believes it is essential for maintaining consumer confidence that contaminated meat does not slip through the tests which will be required on such cattle.
