MPI periodically asks for feedback on food safety issues that affect consumers and the food industry.
MPI is proposing to amend the Animal Product (Ante-mortem and Post-mortem Examination of Mammal, Ostrich and Emu intended for Human Consumption) Notice 2006 and replace this notice as Animal Products Notice: Ante-mortem and Post-mortem examination of Mammals, Ostrich and Emu intended for Human Consumption. And the current post-mortem examination procedures (‘Manual 16’) will be reissued as three separate documents.
