Animal feed held over BSE risk
From:The Irish Independent
Wednesday, 3rd November, 2004

THE Department of Agriculture has impounded two consignments of sugar
beet pulp containing traces of bone because they could pose a BSE risk.


The consignments, which were intended for use as cattle feed, were
imported to Kinsale from Germany via Rotterdam in late October and
samples were taken for testing.

Five days later the tests revealed the traces of bone, although it is
not possible to establish what kind of animal they came from.

The vast majority of the sugar beet, approximately 96pc, was still in
the port and officials are trying to trace the remainder.

Bone in animal feed is strictly prohibited because of the risk of
transmitting BSE.
