As a consumer and a health care worker I implore you to keep the regulation to ban the use of any part of a downed animal in ANY food source. Before the long term results of this practice become evident there may be effects that are devastating to animals and humans alike.
Our population is obsessively concerned with what we perceive as "Weapons of Mass Destruction", but we are in reality infinitely more in danger of perishing by our diets that are laden with chemicals, growth hormones and bacteria.
Your organization can make one small change by not allowing yourself to be influenced by the cattleman's association or other organizations that have the almighty dollar as the basis for their actions. The American public is counting on you to do what is best for them; please do the right thing.
