Unfortunately, no amount of processing will remove infectious proteins that are responsible for Mad Cow Disease. Even if processing guidelines were more accurate and mandatory, the risk for Mad Cow Disease and its human form remain.
Now that you know what our country's cows are forced to swallow, it's time to take action. Since the states are not regulating this filthy feed, the FDA must step in and ban poultry litter as cattle feed once and for all. In August 2009, FACT filed an official petition with FDA to urge the Agency to prohibit the practice. We need your help to convince the government to reinstate the litter feeding ban NOW.
