France speaks out against regulations on meat meal

Desserts

With the recent horse meat scandal still going on, other news from the food industry has caught my eye. After a twelve-year ban, fish feed manufacturers will be able to use protein from pork or chicken. This authorization has led France to speak out against the meat meal regulations.

Let us remember that the ban on the use of meat meals came about as a result of the "mad cow" crisis. The epidemic of bovine sponjpgorm encephalopathy or "mad cow" disease was caused by the use of flour in the diet of cattle, which is herbivorous. The ban on its use was extended in 2001 to supply all animals intended for human consumption.

Now, this new measure will allow the use of animal proteins in the feeding of farmed fish, since the European Commission considers that "The most recent scientific studies show that the risk of TSE transmission between non-ruminant animals is negligible, as long as interspecies cannibalism is avoided".

I have a bit of the perception that if the French Government had not spoken out against the use of meat meal, this measure would not have transpired. It is always the same feeling, that consumers are the end of a chain and we do not always receive the information in a complete way. Does the same thing happen to you? If the use of meat meals is really so harmless, why were they prohibited?
