BSE meat curbs to be eased

UK - The long-awaited lifting of the anti-BSE measure that keeps meat from older cattle out of food may finally happen in November, nearly 10 years after the rule was introduced. The Food Standards Agency is expected to recommend to ministers today that they should replace the rule banning meat from most animals over 30 months with a rigorous testing regime. Independent advisers and the European commission are thought to be happy with the system which might increase UK-based beef production by a quarter.
