WARNING LETTER

CERTIFIED MAIL
RETURNED RECEIPT REQUESTED

Mr. William L. Brown, Owner
Brown Cattle Company
1 Feed Lot Road
P.O. Box 281
Petrolia, TX 76377

Dear Mr. Brown:

An inspection of your ruminant feeding operation located at 1 Feed Lot
Road, Petrolia, Texas, was conducted on August 24 and September 8, 2004
by an Investigator from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The
inspection found significant deviations from
the requirements set forth in Title 21, Code of Federal Regulations,
Part 589.2000 - Animal Proteins Prohibited in Ruminant Feed (21 CFR
589.2000). This regulation is intended to prevent the establishment and
amplification of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE).

Our inspection revealed that you feed prohibited material, as defined by
21 CFR 598.2000(a), to ruminants. This prohibited material consists of
human food processing waste, which is derived from corn dog
manufacturing and contains hot dogs and corn dogs. Inspected meat
products that have been cooked and offered for human food and further
heat processed for animal feed are not prohibited material. This is more
fully described in Guidance for Industry 76, which was previously
provided to your firm. The human food processing waste you are using has
not been further heat processed. The failure to further heat process
this material causes the feed to be adulterated within the meaning of
Section 402(a)(2)(C)(i) of the Federal, Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

During our previous inspection on January 17, 2002, copies of the BSE
Guidance documents 69, 70 and 76 and 21 CFR 589.2000, the BSE
regulation, were provided to and discussed with you.

Failure to correct these violations may result in FDA taking regulatory
action without further notice including, but not limited to, seizure
and/or injunction.

It is necessary for you to take action on this matter now. Please notify
this office in writing within fifteen (15) working days from the date
you received this letter. Your response should specifically identify the
actions you are taking to correct the violations and provide specific
timeframes for achieving compliance. Also, as part of your written
response, you should provide information regarding the current feeding
practices followed at your facility and information pertaining to the
planned marketing of your animals. Your reply should be sent to Edwin
Ramos, Compliance Officer, at the above stated address. If you have any
questions concerning the stated matters, you may contact Mr. Ramos at
214-253-5218.

Sincerely,

/s/

Michael A. Chappell

Dallas District Director
