AMI Submits Comments to CFIA Regarding Proposed Feed Ban Enhancements:
Additional Measures 'Will Have No Immediate Effect' on BSE Cases

February 23, 2005

The American Meat Institute (AMI) filed comments to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) today requesting that the Agency rethink its proposal to remove specified risk material (SRM) from all animal feed as an enhancement to Canada's existing feed ban. AMI maintains that such regulations are not justified.

Changes to the Canadian regulation would also disturb the balance of the North American BSE prevention measures that are in place. AMI writes, "The overriding objective of the North American industry is full and complete harmonization of regulations related to the prevention and control of BSE on the continent."

AMI said changes to the Canadian regulation would have no immediate effect in reducing the number of BSE cases that might occur over the next few years. Even in future years, only minimal potential risk reduction will be achieved at enormous cost. Such actions do not constitute prudent public policy.

Included as an attachment to today's comments, AMI references comments previously submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) when a similar feed ban proposal was made in the United States.

Canadian officials are currently conducting a review of their existing feed ban. The new, proposed enhancements are moving through the regulatory process. This comment period closes on Feb. 24.

.....Of course it will. The bar will be raised to a point where the Americans can't jump.

"AMI writes, "The overriding objective of the North American industry is full and complete harmonization of regulations related to the prevention and control of BSE on the continent."

.....Yes and that has been the case for well over a decade the rules were harmonized but with this 22 month disruption that is likely to come to an end as the many in the US continue to deny the existence of BSE within their borders.

The ''drop value'' on cattle is something over 7 cents of the live weight and the packers want to keep every penny of it!!!

If they want to keep every penny of the drop value, why wouldn't they keep every penny of the beef value?????

If they kept every penny of the beef value, WHY DOES THE MARKET MOVE??????

I guess the obvious is simply too obvious isn't it??

Take care.

So when does the AMI know all about the science of BSE? Could there be alterior motives involved? :wink:
