Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy – Current and Proposed Safeguards

Shortly after the first case, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and other officials announced measures to improve existing safeguards against the introduction and spread of BSE. Previously, the major safeguards were: (1) USDA restrictions on imports of ruminants and their products from countries with BSE; (2) a ban on feeding most mammalian proteins to cattle and other ruminants, issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA); and (3) a targeted domestic surveillance program by USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), the agency responsible for animal health monitoring and disease control.
