UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE
FOOD SAFETY AND INSPECTION SERVICE
WASHINGTON, DC
FSIS NOTICE 5-05 1/19/05
ELECTRONIC ANIMAL DISPOSITION REPORTING SYSTEM (eADRS)
DATA ENTRY FOR THE BOVINE SPONGIFORM ENCEPHALOPATHY
(BSE) SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM
I. PURPOSE
This notice informs Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) personnel
that BSE
sample collection information will now be entered into the eADRS. The
notice also
cancels the use of FSIS Form 5000-11, beginning February 1, 2005.
II. BACKGROUND
In cooperation with FSIS, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service
(APHIS)
leads an ongoing, comprehensive, interagency surveillance program for
BSE. FSIS
Public Health Veterinarians (PHVs) have been collecting samples from all
cattle
showing signs of central nervous system (CNS) disorders, as well as from
the types of
cattle that may be at higher risk of being infected with the agent
believed to cause BSE.
As stated in FSIS Notice 28-04, and clarified in FSIS Notice 29-04, all
antemortem
condemned cattle at federally inspected establishments will have a
portion of the brain
collected by the specially trained FSIS PHV, except for (1) cattle that
are 400 pounds or
less (which may be referred to as veal calves) with characteristics of
immature cattle,
that are condemned by the FSIS PHV but do not exhibit CNS signs, and (2)
cattle
condemned on ante-mortem inspection that the establishment elects to
have treated
pursuant to 9 CFR 309.13(b). Those notices also provide for brain
collection at
alternative off-site locations.
To date, inspection program personnel have recorded information about
the sample
collection on FSIS Form 5000-11 (BSE Sampling Tracking Sheet), which has
been used
to ensure that FSIS receives reimbursement from APHIS for brain sample
collection.
DISTRIBUTION: Inspection Offices; NOTICE EXPIRES: 2/1/06 OPI: OPPED
T/A Inspectors; Plant Mgt; TRA;
ABB; TSC; Import Offices
III. CANCELLATION OF FSIS FORM 5000-11
Beginning February 1, 2005, inspection program personnel will no longer
complete
or send FSIS Form 5000-11 to the Financial Processing Center (FPC). All
of the
information about BSE sample collection will be captured in the new
version of eADRS.
Inspection program personnel are expected to complete and send FSIS Form
5000-11
to the FPC through January 31, 2005.
IV. UPDATED eADRS
The eADRS application will be updated in version 1.0.4 with new data
entry screens
and prompts for the entry of information related to BSE sample
collection, such as the
Z tag number (the red metal condemnation tag attached to all
antemortem condemned
cattle). NOTE: The new eADRS data entry for Z tag numbers applies to all
antemortem condemned bovines subject to BSE sample collection,
regardless of where
the actual sample collection occurs.
Updated Users Guide information will be provided with eADRS version
1.0.4 to aid
in the proper entry of BSE sample collection data. Inspection program
personnel are
expected to enter information regarding BSE sample collection in
addition to the
information already being entered related to disposition of cattle
carcasses. As stated in
the eADRS Users Guide, data should be entered by one designated person
on one
computer for a given shift for a specific slaughter date.
Instructions on downloading the new version of eADRS (version 1.0.4) the
Users
Guide will be sent by a separate electronic mail message when eADRS
version 1.0.4 is
available for implementation.
V. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
For assistance with the technical aspects of using eADRS on the
computer, please
call FAIMHELP at 1-800-473-9135.
For assistance with inspection issues related to animal disposition,
humane handling
reporting, or BSE sample collection, please call the Technical Service
Center at 1-800-
233-3935.
