Scientific Opinion on the public health hazards to be covered by inspection of meat from sheep and goats

2013 EFSA Journal  
Surveillance of tuberculosis at the slaughterhouse in small ruminants should be improved and encouraged, as this is in practice the only surveillance system available.  ...  A risk ranking process identified Toxoplasma gondii and pathogenic verocytotoxin-producing Escherichia coli (VTEC) as the most relevant biological hazards for meat inspection of sheep and goats.  ...  (a) Carbamates and pyrethroids Carbamates and pyrethroids are used in animal houses and occasionally in animals including sheep for control of environmental infections, such as lice eggs in buildings.  ...
