The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has produced guidance to help meat processors comply with the moratorium on the production and use of 'desinewed meat' (DSM) from pig bones and poultry carcases.
The moratorium comes into effect from Saturday 26 May.
This follows advice from the European Commission (EC) that DSM produced by mechanically separating residual meat left after boning must be regarded as mechanically separated meat (MSM) and labelled as such.
A moratorium on DSM for cattle, sheep, and goat bones has applied since 28 April, following EC advice that DSM cannot be produced from the bones of those animals. The FSA published relevant guidance on 27 April.
