Every day, FDA is protecting people by making sure that the food they eat comes from healthy animals.
At a 30-minute webinar, FDA experts will discuss animal feed controls the agency has put in place to keep BSE out of the U.S. cattle population, thereby ensuring the safety of the nation's food supply from BSE. The presentation (download slides) will include an opportunity to ask questions.
