######### Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy #########

USDA/APHIS would like to provide clarification on the following point from
Mr. Singeltary's 9 Jan posting regarding the 50 state conference call.

[Linda Detwiler asking everyone (me) not to use emergency BSE number, unless
last resort. (i thought of calling them today, and reporting the whole damn
U.S. cattle herd ;-) 'not']

Dr. Detwiler was responding to an announcement made during the call to use
the FDA emergency number if anyone wanted to report a cow with signs suspect
for BSE. Mr. Singeltary is correct that Dr. Detwiler asked participants to
use the FDA emergency number as a last resort to report cattle suspect for
BSE. What Mr. Singeltary failed to do was provide the List with Dr.
Detwiler's entire statement. Surveillance for BSE in the United States is a
cooperative effort between states, producers, private veterinarians,
veterinary hospitals and the USDA. The system has been in place for over 10
years. Each state has a system in place wherein cases are reported to
either the State Veterinarian, the federal Veterinarian in Charge or through
the veterinary diagnostic laboratory system. The states also have
provisions with emergency numbers. Dr. Detwiler asked participants to use
the systems currently in place to avoid the possibility of a BSE-suspect
report falling through the cracks. Use of the FDA emergency number has not
been established as a means to report diseased cattle of any nature.
