In Reply to: Calf Claimer Powder with prohibited bovine blood meal which did not bear the cautionary BSE statement DISTRIBUTION NATIONWIDE posted by TSS on June 13, 2007 at 10:59 am:

someone pointed out to me that this is probably an error;


REASON

The finished product was manufactured with prohibited bovine blood meal and

did not bear the cautionary BSE statement that the product should not be fed

to ruminants


http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/enforce/2007/ENF01008.html

i went and looked at warning letters a few months ago that read ;


REASON

Blood meal used to make cattle feed was recalled because it was cross-contaminated with

prohibited bovine meat and bone meal that had been manufactured on common equipment and

labeling did not bear cautionary BSE statement.


http://www.fda.gov/bbs/topics/enforce/2007/ENF00996.html


WE do know that it is perfectly legal to feed blood to livestock for consumption.

Table 1. Animal feed ingredients that are legally used in U.S. animal feeds

Animal


Rendered animal protein from Meat meal, meat meal tankage, meat and bone

meal, poultry meal, animal the slaughter of food by-product meal, dried
animal blood, blood meal, feather meal, egg-shell production animals and
other meal, hydrolyzed whole poultry, hydrolyzed hair, bone marrow, and
animal animals digest from dead, dying, diseased, or disabled animals
including deer and elk Animal waste Dried ruminant waste, dried swine waste,
dried poultry litter, and undried processed animal waste products

wouldn't it be wonderful to finally be able to give an


'at-a-boy'

'way-to-go'

'great move'

'it's about time'


to the fda for finally taking a step in the right direction about blood in livestock feed,
but i don't think that's the case, hell, they cannot even stop the ruminant protein in feed for livestock,
so this was probably an error that will be corrected. we will just have to wait and see next enforcement report. ...


kind regards,
terry
