######## Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy ######### 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; snip...

######## Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy ######### 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 Export Library EUREQ9 06/1/01 EXPORT REQUIREMENTS FOR THE EUROPEAN UNION snip... M. Stunning The injection of air during stunning is prohibited.* N. Opening of stomachs and intestines There must be a separate room for emptying and cleaning stomachs and intestines, unless the processing is done by closed-circuit mechanical equipment which avoids contamination and eliminates odors.

The animals have not been slaughtered, after 31 March 2001, after stunning by means of a gas injected into the cranial cavity or killed instantaneously by the same method, or slaughtered after laceration, after stunning, of central nervous tissue by means of an elongated rod-shaped instrument introduced into the cranial cavity."
