FRANCE - The country's food safety agency has published a negative opinion on the reintroduction of non-ruminant processed animals protein (PAP; previously known as meat and bone meal).

While acknowledging progress made in the way the industry is organised, the French agency nevertheless considers that the necessary conditions to allow a safe use of PAPs have not yet been met, reports BPEX.

In 2009, they made the reintroduction of PAPs in feed conditional on a reliable testing method to differentiate between the proteins.

Since this testing method is not yet available – the Commission launched a research project on this in 2009 but results are still awaited – the agency says it is not ready to support the reintroduction of non-ruminant PAPs in feed.
