| Our organization would encourage FDA to NOT approve the proposed rule
Docket N0. 2002N-0273.
* It is our opinion that the existing feed restrictions are adaquate. We have been granted the return of trade with countries that had concern about our BSE situation.
* The USDA surveillance program shows that we do not have a BSE risk in US cattle.
* This rule would create a unbelieveable environmental problem that has the
potential of associated animal and human health concerns created by improper disposal of dead animals and animal byproducts.
