Awareness of food safety and its economic significance has never been higher after public alarm following the BSE crisis and the Foot-and-Mouth outbreak.

This classic text is an essential handbook for all persons involved in meat inspection and the meat industry seeking information on the latest diseases and parasites. Now in its seventh edition, it has been revised to reflect the latest knowledge of BSE, Foot-and-Mouth and TB.
