European Union: MEPs may veto "visual only" meat checks in abattoirs

Proposals to allow veterinarians to declare that meat is fit for human consumption in abattoirs after a simple visual check could be vetoed in a vote on Wednesday.

Monday 7 October 2013 (4 years 7 months 21 days ago)

Proposals to allow veterinarians to declare that meat is fit for human consumption in abattoirs after a simple visual check could be vetoed in a vote on Wednesday. Food Safety Committee MEPs fear that these proposals could result in sanitary problems and risks to human health going undetected.

The proposal would allow incision and palpation procedures by official veterinarians, who apply the health mark, but only if data of provenance, previous inspections or visual checks indicate possible risks to public health, animal health or animal welfare.
