Do you have questions about Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE)? Did you know that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) works to keep the food supply in the U.S. safe for people and animals? Everyday, FDA is protecting people by making sure that the food they eat comes from healthy animals.

Learn more Thursday, April 22, at 2 p.m. ET, when FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine will host a 30-minute webinar on BSE or more commonly known as "Mad Cow Disease." Featured speakers Shannon Jordre, Consumer Safety Officer and Burt Pritchett, Veterinary Medical Officer from the Division of Compliance, Center for Veterinary Medicine, will discuss animal feed controls FDA has put in place to keep BSE out of the U.S. cattle population, thereby ensuring the safety of the nation's food supply from BSE. After the presentation, there will be an opportunity to ask questions.

NOTE: There will be a limited amount of spots for the webinar, so please call in early!
