Abstract

Post-mortem findings of 373.901 cattle slaughtered at an EC abattoir are reported. Results show high incidence of pneumonia and hepatic lesions. Total condemnation of the whole carcass has happened 91 times in Bovine species, 1073 times in swine species, 40 in sheep. In the light of the EC Regulation N.854/2004 of the European parliament and of the council of 29th April 2004 that lays down specific rules for the organization of official controls of products of animal origin destined for human consumption, authors outline the examples of simplification and partial redrafting of the existing laws on the basis of the opinions expresses by the EFSA. Comparison to other European countries and an estimate of economic damage are discussed.
