Research call on official controls on meat

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is commissioning a new piece of research into official controls on meat.

The Agency says it is looking for a contractor to develop a more targeted approach to inspection for Cysticercus bovis, a disease that affects the muscles of cattle, caused by the larvae of a human tapeworm.

The work is part of the Future Meat Controls Research Programme, designed to gather evidence to modernise meat inspection.

The deadline for applications is Wednesday 25th September. For details click here.
