DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE

Food Safety and Inspection Service

9 CFR Parts 309, 310, and 318

[Docket No. 03-025F]
RIN 0583-AC88


Prohibition of the Use of Specified Risk Materials for Human Food
and Requirements for the Disposition of Non-Ambulatory Disabled Cattle;
Prohibition of the Use of Certain Stunning Devices Used To Immobilize
Cattle During Slaughter

AGENCY: Food Safety and Inspection Service, USDA.

ACTION: Affirmation of interim final rules with amendments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is affirming,
with changes, the interim final rule ``Prohibition of the Use of
Specified Risk Materials for Human Food and Requirements for the
Disposition of Non-Ambulatory Cattle,'' which was published in the
Federal Register on January 12, 2004. The Agency is also affirming the
interim final rule ``Prohibition of the Use of Certain Stunning Devices
Used to Immobilize Cattle During Slaughter,'' also published on January
12, 2004. FSIS issued these interim final rules in response to the
confirmation on December 23, 2003, of bovine spongiform encephalopathy
(BSE) in an imported dairy cow in Washington State. FSIS is taking this
action to make permanent interim measures implemented by the Agency to
minimize human exposure to cattle materials that could potentially
contain the BSE agent.

DATES: This final rule is effective October 1, 2007. Comments on the
information presented under ``Paperwork Reduction Act'' must be
received by September 11, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dr. Daniel Engeljohn, Deputy Assistant
Administrator, Office of Policy, Program, and Employee Development,
FSIS, U.S. Department of Agriculture, 1400 Independence Avenue, SW.,
Washington, DC 20250-3700, (202) 205-0495.
