The U.K Food Standards Agency is to start public consultation until the beginning of November on its draft report of BSE controls. Sir Joh Krebs, Chairman of the Agency, said: " The protection of the public has been the guiding principle of this review." Main points of the report are that BSE is characterised by scientific uncertainty, beef from cattle aged over thirty months at slaughter is banned from sale for human consumption in the UK and that a review of the effectiveness of tightened feed controls introduced in August 1996 be carried out in August 2001. The full report is available from the Food Standards Agency.
