Revised BSE rule allows part of cattle intestine in food

first_img The BSE agent was detected in the distal ileum as soon as 6 months after exposure, Hueston said, adding, “The agent has not been detected in other parts of the intestine.” The wall of the distal ileum contains patches of lymphoid tissue that are thought to be involved in disseminating the BSE agent through the body, according to a research summary from the United Kingdom Department of Food, Environment and Rural Affairs. The US Department of Agriculture banned the use of the small intestine of cattle in food shortly after the first US case of BSE surfaced in December 2003. Later, in July 2004, the Food and Drug Administration banned use of the small intestine in food supplements and cosmetics. Sep 7 FSIS news release Eating meat products from BSE-infected cattle is believed to be the cause of variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, the human equivalent of BSE. The brain diseases are incurable and always fatal. The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) said it “has determined that the portion of the small intestine traditionally used as food, or as a casing for specialty sausage, can be safely and effectively separated from the section that contains the distal ileum.” This provides just as much protection as removing the entire small intestine, the statement added. Potter said the distal ileum makes up only a small part of a cow’s small intestine. It ranges from 3 to 6 feet in length, while the main portion, called the jejunum, is 80 to 150 feet long. Though the small intestine can also be used in cosmetics, Potter said he was not aware of such use. However, dietary supplement makers harvest some enzymes from beef intestine for use in their products, he added. This week, both agencies announced that only the distal ileum—the last few feet of the small intestine—will be banned from those products henceforward. Researchers have found that the distal ileum is the only part of the intestine that contains the BSE agent in infected cattle, and the agencies said the distal ileum can be safely removed from the rest of the intestinal tract. In studies in which calves were fed material from BSE-infected cattle, the distal ileum was the first tissue where signs of the disease showed up, according to Will D. Hueston, DVM, a BSE expert and director of the University of Minnesota Center for Animal Health and Food Safety in St Paul. The FSIS said the rule change is consistent with BSE-related guidance from the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) in its 2005 Terrestrial Animal Health Code. See also: Sep 8, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – Meat companies are again free to use most of the small intestine of cattle to make sausage casings, following a change in a federal rule intended to protect people from exposure to bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), or mad cow disease. Sep 6 FDA news release The change takes effect Oct 7, and the FDA and FSIS will take comments until Nov 7. The agency said it will now require removal of the lower 80 inches of the small intestine. Businesses will have to demonstrate that they have written procedures for this. Besides US companies, foreign companies eligible to export beef to the United States will be subject to the revised rule, the FSIS said. “The procedure is typically completed while the small intestine and large intestine are still attached [to the carcass], so there’s no chance that personnel would measure and cut from the wrong end,” FSIS spokeswoman Amanda Eamich told CIDRAP News. In the meat industry, cattle intestines are used mainly to make natural casings for sausage, mostly for ethnic markets, according to Dr. Morris Potter, lead scientist for epidemiology in the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.last_img read more

Luke Walton hopes D’Angelo Russell remains effective even when off

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Lakers coach Luke Walton has seen Russell experience other challenges, too. After insisting Russell should feel free to take any open shots, Walton believed Russell’s 3-of-14 clip “got him disconnected a little bit.”“He was trying to do the right thing, which I’m fine with,” Walton said. “But when the shot’s not going individually, especially for a point guard, it’s finding other ways to stay really locked in.”Walton plans to discuss more in depth with Russell, but he already sounded self-critical. “I have to take the right shot when it’s there. But I have to make the right play when it’s there,” Russell said. “I still have to separate myself to be good enough to make those plays.” Injury update The Lakers diagnosed Brandon Ingram with tendinitis in his right knee, though an MRI revealed no structural damage. The Lakers listed Ingram as probable for Sunday’s game against Oklahoma City. He completed a full-contact practice on Saturday without any restrictions. Ingram also provided a positive report on his ability to run up and down the court and make hard cuts.“I’ll come back to shoot around and see how I feel after that,” said Ingram, who played in only four minutes in Friday’s game against Utah. “If I feel good to play, I’ll play.”The Lakers also expect backup point guard Jose Calderon to return after missing the previous two contests with a strained left calf. Walton does not plan to play Calderon more than 30 minutes. Going deepEven through the elation over picking up his first victory as an NBA head coach, Walton still felt upset with something. He jokingly blamed Lakers assistant Brian Shaw for not helping him allot minutes last week to Thomas Robinson against Houston as the team’s 13th player. It seems ambitious for Walton to field a 12-player lineup for all of the 2016-17 season as he has done for the first two games. But he plans to field a “deep rotation” in hopes “to wear teams down.”“I know how much more a part of the team you feel even if it’s just only four or five minutes on a certain night,” said Walton, referring to his 10-year NBA career. “With the environment we’re trying to build and foundation we’re trying to set, we want everyone believing in the idea that it is our team and different nights it’s going to be different people.”Upon further reviewThrough his early coaching tenure, Walton has adopted Phil Jackson’s coaching style with both his calm demeanor and empowering players. Walton critiqued the officiating in Friday’s loss to Utah, something Jackson often did well arguably to influence how future games are called. Yet, Walton maintained that did not fit his thought process.“I’m always going to try to support the guys, but the officials have an impossible job,” Walton said. “There’s so many things they have to call, look at and watch for. Then they constantly have two coaches all over them.”center_img OKLAHOMA CITY >> The buzzer just sounded, signaling both the Lakers’ first loss of the 2016-17 season and the end of a frustrating game filled with endless whistles. Before Lakers forward Julius Randle could express any more frustration, Lakers guard D’Angelo Russell wrapped his arm around him and offered some encouraging words. “When we lose, we can’t be separated or anything like that,” Russell said after the Lakers’ loss to Utah on Friday. “That’s when we have to come together. I was trying to preach that.”The incident highlighted Russell’s emergence as a leader as the Lakers (1-1) visit the Oklahoma City Thunder today at Chesapeake Energy Arena. Moments later, though, Russell showed how that area still remains a work in progress. In the locker room, Russell lamented about calls, prompting veteran forward Luol Deng to address him privately. last_img read more
