HC Deb 05 May 1987 vol 115 c348W
Mr. John Townend

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if, in view of the continuing high incidence of salmonella food poisoning, he will consider making mandatory the effective treatment of animal protein feeds against salmonella.

Mr. Donald Thompson

Processed animal protein for use as animal feedingstuff is subject by statute to sample testing to ensure that it is salmonella free. If contamination is detected the manufacturer is required to take corrective action. Similar controls apply to imported animal protein.
