Subject: Pet Food Exported to Turkey from the United States (Alabama, Texas, Washington BANNED for BSE mad cow risk factor)

Pet Food Exported to Turkey from the United States

USDA has not agreed to the below requirements. Certification of pet food to Turkey is under negotiation. However, until an agreement is reached, the government of Turkey is requiring the following protocol. Exporters wishing to export to Turkey prior to agreement on a protocol must meet these requirements of the government of Turkey.

Ineligible products:

The following pet foods are not eligible for export to Turkey:

Pet food containing any ruminant origin ingredients (other than dairy or hides or skins) if that pet food is manufactured, labeled, packaged, or stored in Washington State or the State of Texas or the State of Alabama. Even if the ruminant origin ingredients are imported from a BSE free country, the pet food is banned.

Pet food containing US origin ruminant origin ingredients (other than dairy or hides or skins).

Pet food containing poultry (including egg) origin ingredients except for:

Pet food containing no poultry-origin ingredients other than those poultry-origin ingredients that have been heated to a minimum internal temperature of 70º C for 3.5 seconds.

Eligible products:

Turkey is believed to permit the import of the following pet food only:

Pet food containing no ruminant origin ingredients.

Pet food containing no ruminant origin ingredients except for dairy or hides or skins.

Pet food containing no ruminant origin ingredients except for those imported from countries recognized by Turkey as being free of BSE, IF this pet food is not processed in any way in Washington State or the State of Texas or the State of Alabama.

Pet food containing no poultry-origin ingredients.

Pet food containing no poultry-origin ingredients other than those poultry-origin ingredients that have been heated to a minimum internal temperature of 70º C for 3.5 seconds.

Certification Requirements

Pet food shipments must be accompanied by a VS Form 16-4 (MAR 2004 Version) with the following three exact items added to the "ADDITIONAL DECLARATION" area. The fourth statement is only required if Turkey has imposed an avian influenza ban on one of the U.S. states, otherwise it is optional. Go back to the general Turkey page and view "Important information regarding trade bans on poultry products" to determine if an avian influenza ban is in place." (No attestations other than the below 3-4 may be included on the certificate. The statements may not be paraphrased or changed in any way.)

I. The statement "This office has on file a notarized affidavit from [insert manufacturer's name here] verifying the accuracy of the statements below."

II. One of the following statements:

OPTION A (for pet food that is not hermetically sealed)

The statement "The pet food was analyzed by a random sampling of at least five samples from each lot with the following standards:

Salmonella: absence in 25g: n = 5, c = 0, m = 0, M = 0, Enterobacteriaceae: n = 5, c = 2, m = 10, M = 300 in 1 gram;

Where:

n = number of samples to be tested, m = threshold value for the number of bacteria; the result is considered satisfactory if the number of bacteria in all samples does not exceed m, M = maximum value for the number of bacteria; the result is considered unsatisfactory if the number of bacteria in one or more samples is M or more, and c = number of samples the bacterial count of which may be between m and M, the sample still being considered acceptable if the bacterial count of the other samples is m or less."

OR

OPTION B (for hermetically sealed pet food)

"In case of canned pet food, the pet food has been subjected to a heat treatment to a minimum Fc value of 3."

III. One of the following 3 statements:

Option A (for pet food not containing any ruminant origin materials):

"Certified pet food does not contain any ruminant origin materials.

OR

Option B (for pet food containing no ruminant origin materials except for hides or skins):

"Certified pet food does not contain any ruminant origin materials except for [insert as appropriate: dairy or hides or skins]."

OR

Option C (for pet food containing ruminant origin ingredients other than hides and skins- which must be imported) "Certified pet food:

1. Was not manufactured in Washington State or the State of Texas or the State of Alabama;

AND

2. Does not contain any ruminant origin material [insert/complete as appropriate: except for dairy products, ruminant hides or skins, ________________originating in and imported from _____________ (insert country name).]"***

***Each ruminant origin item should be listed, and for those (except dairy and hides and skins) the country of origin should be detailed. This country must be one recognized by Turkey as free of BSE.

IV.

One of the following 2 statements:

Option A (for pet food either heated to a minimum internal temperature of 70º C for 1 second, or containing no poultry-origin ingredients other than those poultry ingredients that have been heated to a minimum internal temperature of 70º C for 1 second):

"All poultry origin ingredients in the pet food have been heated to a minimum of 70°C for a minimum of 3.5 seconds during the production process."

OR

Option B (for pet food not containing any poultry origin materials):

"The pet food does not contain any ingredients derived from poultry."

Note regarding laboratory results (Roman number II above).

Option A: Lab reports: In order for this statement to be included on the certificate, lot specific test reports must be presented to the APHIS Area Office endorsing the certificate with the certificate. Those reports may not be part of the certificate itself.

Greetings,

CONSIDERING the two mad cows in TEXAS, the one that was highly suspect that got Wisk away to the renderer under strict orders to be done away with, with NO TEST AT ALL i.e. NTAA's, that mad cow was covered-up, and the other atypical H-BSE, that was almost cover-up too in a cloak of darkness, except for the Honorable Phyllis Fong of the OIG, and after some 8 months, and much criticism and finger pointing of a cover-up, this case was finally proven to be a positive, confirmed H-BSE atypical case. Considering the other atypical H-BSE case in Alabama, no traceability of cohorts etc., considering all this, how can anyone blame Turkey, or any other Country from having the same ban ??? Considering the BSE GBR risk assessments of the USA, Canada, and Mexico, all of North America should be banned. BUT, thanks to the USDA, GW, and the OIE, you have the free trading of all strains of TSE globally, and it's legal now. nothing like sound 'junk science'. $$$

LET's look at why Turkey, and other countries should be worried ;

LET'S LOOK AT THE MAD COW FEED ''IN COMMERCE'' BY TONNAGE IN ALABAMA 2006, and some other in commerce in TEXAS i.e. the infamous Purina show at Gonzales Texas, and all it was, was show ;

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE P01-05 January 30, 2001 Print Media: 301-827-6242 Consumer Inquiries: 888-INFO-FDA

FDA ANNOUNCES TEST RESULTS FROM TEXAS FEED LOT

Today the Food and Drug Administration announced the results of tests taken on feed used at a Texas feedlot that was suspected of containing meat and bone meal from other domestic cattle -- a violation of FDA's 1997 prohibition on using ruminant material in feed for other ruminants. Results indicate that a very low level of prohibited material was found in the feed fed to cattle.

FDA has determined that each animal could have consumed, at most and in total, five-and-one-half grams - approximately a quarter ounce -- of prohibited material. These animals weigh approximately 600 pounds.

It is important to note that the prohibited material was domestic in origin (therefore not likely to contain infected material because there is no evidence of BSE in U.S. cattle), fed at a very low level, and fed only once. The potential risk of BSE to such cattle is therefore exceedingly low, even if the feed were contaminated.

According to Dr. Bernard Schwetz, FDA's Acting Principal Deputy Commissioner, "The challenge to regulators and industry is to keep this disease out of the United States. One important defense is to prohibit the use of any ruminant animal materials in feed for other ruminant animals. Combined with other steps, like U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) ban on the importation of live ruminant animals from affected countries, these steps represent a series of protections, to keep American cattle free of BSE."

Despite this negligible risk, Purina Mills, Inc., is nonetheless announcing that it is voluntarily purchasing all 1,222 of the animals held in Texas and mistakenly fed the animal feed containing the prohibited material. Therefore, meat from those animals will not enter the human food supply. FDA believes any cattle that did not consume feed containing the prohibited material are unaffected by this incident, and should be handled in the beef supply clearance process as usual.

FDA believes that Purina Mills has behaved responsibly by first reporting the human error that resulted in the misformulation of the animal feed supplement and then by working closely with State and Federal authorities.

This episode indicates that the multi-layered safeguard system put into place is essential for protecting the food supply and that continued vigilance needs to be taken, by all concerned, to ensure these rules are followed routinely.

FDA will continue working with USDA as well as State and local officials to ensure that companies and individuals comply with all laws and regulations designed to protect the U.S. food supply.
