§ Mrs. Browning
In Ireland the use of mammalian protein in ruminant feedstuffs was first prohibited from 13 August 1990.
We do not have detailed information on the legislation in place in each of the other member states. Community decision 94/381 of 27 June 1994 required all member states to ban the feeding of mammalian protein to ruminants. In member states with a system which makes it possible to distinguish between protein from ruminant and non-ruminant species—such as Denmark—the ban is limited to the feeding of ruminant protein to ruminants.
We are not aware of any controls in other member states on the feeding of mammalian protein to animals for human consumption other than ruminants.
