Executive Summary

TALLOW DERIVATIVE SOURCE IRRESPECTIVE OF COUNTRY's BSE STATUS RECOMMENDED by a narrow vote by FDA's Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies Advisory Committee at a meeting in Bethesda, Md. April 15-16. The committee voted 6-5 to allow for the sourcing of tallow derivatives in drugs, nutritional supplements, foods and cosmetics "from any country, irrespective" of its bovine spongiform encephalopathy (e.g., "mad cow disease") status, Committee Chairman Paul Brown, MD, National Institute of Neurological Disorders & Stroke, stated. The advisory group's recommendation would reverse current FDA guidelines, which disallow bovine source materials for the manufacturing of tallow derivatives from countries where TSE/BSE occur.
