Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - December 14, 1964, Mason City, Iowa Poisons on your beefsteak You may not even know if By DAVID HOFFMAN New York Herald News Service WASHINGTONThe succulent steak that dents your budget may have been punctured by a scientists hypodermic and in fused with experimental vac cines untried worm poisons or other chemicals As federal money quickens the pace of clinical research more meat from experimental herds is finding its way to the dinner table At the supermarket cuts of laboratory meat are indistin guishable from the farmfrejsh variety They come in identical wrappers and carry the same federal stamps Should the government force meat packers and grocery stores to label the beef lamb pork and veal that is cut from the car casses of guinea pig animals Or do adequate safeguards al ready exist to protect the pub lic from contaminated meat If so why alarm American meat eaters Across the nation pastures owned by colleges of agricul ture federal and state experi mental stations and big drug laboratories support herds of ex perimental fourlegged animals Some are subjected to potential ly dangerous tests Sprayed with poisonous pesticides fed drugs with radioactive tracers innoc ulated with experimental ser ums Others in the same herd may be used less test novel diets or hormones that could increase fertility or pro tein nutrients that could stimu late growth As matters now stand the owner of experimental animals decides whether to butcher them for sale in the market place there to recoup a portion of his food and drug expenses But this does not mean the owners decision is irreversible All meat sold legally in inter state commence is inspected by the Department of Agriculture Department inspectors examine every animal on the day itis destined to die Then after the slaughtering they examine glands organs tissues and every area of probable abnor mality In fiscal 1963 when cattle growers brought a herd of 21 million animals to US slaugh terhouses federal inspectors condemned 61000 of them as unfit for human consumption Now the Agriculture Depart ment would erect an additional safeguard Early next year the depart ment is expected to rule that animals sprayed fed or innocu lated with experimental sub stances cannot be slaughtered for the dinner table That is unless written permission is granted first by the depart

animal But those who oppose the sale of unlabeled experimental meat assert that even this rule does not go far enough They point out that animals raised slaughtered and butch ered within the boundaries of a single state account for about 20 per cent of the meat con sumed by Americans These cuts get no federal inspection And state inspection regulations range in sophistication from those of New York and Cali fornia which copied the federal rules and enacted them to those of several southern states which follow an eat at your own risk policy Advocates of destroying exper imental animals or reserving their meat for pet food question whether a veter identify a carcass contaminated by a strange drug without performing special tests on it They would require such tests to insure that no harmful chemical residue remains in the meat As Health Bulletin a medi cal trade weekly editorialized recently A country as rich as ours doesnt have to palm off test animals on people as farm
