FDA Amends Interim Final Rule "Use of Materials Derived from Cattle in Human
Food and Cosmetics"

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today published several amendments to
the July 2004 interim final rule, "Use of Materials Derived from Cattle in
Human Food and Cosmetics," that will allow the use of certain cattle-derived
material in human foods and cosmetics.

The rule prohibits the use of cattle-derived materials that can carry the
infectious agent for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), or mad cow
disease, in human foods, dietary supplements, and in cosmetics. Based on
the scientific information provided during the interim final rule's comment
period, which demonstrates that a part of the cow's digestive tract called
the distal ileum can be consistently and effectively removed from the other
sections of the small intestine, it is no longer necessary to designate the
entire small intestine as a prohibited cattle material.

As a result, FDA is amending the rule to allow use of the small intestine in
human food and cosmetics, provided that the distal ileum has been removed.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is publishing today a similar amendment
to its interim final rule on BSE.

The amendments also clarify that milk and milk products, hides and
hide-derived products, and tallow derivatives are not prohibited for use in
human food and cosmetics.

Finally, FDA has reconsidered the recommended method for determining
insoluble impurities in a type of solid fat known as tallow, in response to
information submitted to the agency, to cite a method that is less costly to
use and requires less specialized equipment.

FDA issued the interim final rule to minimize human exposure to materials
that studies have demonstrated are highly likely to contain the BSE agent in
cattle with the disease. The amended interim final rule provides the same
level of protection against the agent that causes BSE as the original
provisions.

The amendments to the interim final rule are effective on October 7, 2005
and comments are being are accepted on the amendments through November 7,
2005.
