Greetings List Members,

if you go to Swiss Veterinary Service;

http://www.bvet.admin.ch/0_navigation-e/0_index-intern.html

click on;

imports/exports

click on;

Liste der Fleischerzeugnisse mit Rind, die in die Schweiz eingeführt
werden dürfen Liste des produits à base de viande contenant du boeuf qui
sont admis à l'importation en Suisse List of meat products containing
beef approved for import into Switzerland

then click on USA;

you will then see a list of ''Approved abattoirs''
for Switzerland.

i would be curious to know if these abattoirs
have different process for products exported to
Switzerland as opposed to what they process
for the U.S.A. ???

or are these abattoirs strictly for export
to EU countries due to SRM ban ???

in other words, is the U.S feeding it's
public products contaminated with SRMs,
but separating these SRMs for products
exported to EU Countries ???

what is the difference between these abattoirs
approved for export to Switzerland and ones that
are not ???

for instance, we know the U.S. 'carefully'
;-) stuns it's cattle, so how do they kill these cattle for export to
Switzerland, if EU restrictions does not allow this ??? (i still
have not figured out how burger king 'carefully' stuns it's cattle) i
think it was Roland who said that electric stunning was the only
stunning safe. i am sure he will correct me if i am wrong. But
i don't think this works on cows (electric stunning)?

SO, is that what these 'approved' abattoirs are
for in the U.S., to go by EU guidelines for
export products to EU ''only'' ???

but for U.S. Public, we are still getting
beef products tainted with SRMs ???

hmmm, could be another reason the feed mills
in TEXAS are getting away with NOT going by
8/4/97 ruminant-to-ruminant feed ban as of
7/12/01. i see a few of these approved
abattoirs in Texas. We know of the token
purina feed mill that was handed to us from
the FDA, after the NY Times broke the story
of the 'infamous' feed ban that never was.
BUT what about the others in TEXAS. i have
already shown you one such feed mill, that
i personally bought feed from, with absolutely
NO warning of DO NOT FEED TO RUMINANTS;

Greetings List Members,

I am sorry to say that the USDA/APHIS/FDA
officials that lurk on this list have not
answered the questions i posed. So i took
it upon myself to try and seek answers.

If you remember correctly, i was concerned
with the continued use of SRMs and stunning
in the U.S.A., and that the U.S. public
were still being put at risk from the continued
use of these materials and methods, buy yet
for export purposes, the U.S. had set up
separate regulations and plants for export
purposes, to separate SRMs and to use other
methods of slaughter for export purposes
only.

i pass some information that may bring just
this to light;

thank you,
Terry S. Singeltary Sr., Bacliff, Texas USA

postmortem inspection point, a batch system shall be operated in
such a way that the Inspector in Charge (IIC) can demonstrate that if a
carcass is condemned its offal and blood shall also be
condemned.

P. Casings

Casing destined to the EU must be processed in EU approved
establishments that are operating under FSIS' inspection

[Docket No. 04-040N]


Regulatory Flexibility Act; Amended Plan for Reviewing
Regulations Under Section 610 Requirements

AGENCY: Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), USDA.

ACTION: Schedule of regulations to be reviewed under section 610
requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act; amended.

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

SUMMARY: The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) is publishing an
amended scheduling plan for reviewing regulations under Section 610 of
the Regulatory Flexibility Act, as amended. These provisions require
that all Federal agencies review existing regulations that have a
significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities
to determine whether the associated impact can be minimized.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For further information contact Dr.
Quita Bowman Blackwell, Director, Directives and Economic Analysis
Staff, FSIS, U.S. Department of Agriculture, 300 12th Street, SW, Room
112, Washington, DC 20250-3700, (202) 720-5627.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

Section 610 of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), as amended (5
U.S.C. 601-612), requires that all Federal agencies review any
regulations that have been identified as having a significant economic
impact upon a substantial number of small entities as a means to
determine whether the associated impact can be minimized by considering
the following factors: (1) The continued need for the rule; (2) the
nature of the complaints or comments received concerning the rule from
the public; (3) the complexity of the rule; (4) the extent to which the
rule overlaps, duplicates, or conflicts with other Federal rules; and
(5) the length of time since the rule has been initially evaluated or
the degree to which technology, economic conditions, or other factors
have changed in the area affected by the rule.
On April 2, 2002, FSIS published in the Federal Register (67 FR
15501) a scheduling plan for reviewing regulations under the 610
provisions. At that point, the Agency had determined to review all
rules deemed economically significant, regardless of whether the Agency
had stated that the rule would impose a significant economic impact on
a substantial number of small entities or not. After further
consideration, FSIS now believes that it would be more effective and
beneficial if the Agency concentrated its reviews under Section 610 of
the RFA on those final and interim final rules that the Agency has
identified as having a significant economic impact on a substantial
number of small entities.
Accordingly, FSIS has amended its plan for reviewing the Agency
rules that it has identified as having a significant economic impact on
a substantial number of small entities.
