BVA Raises Concerns Over Non-stun Meat Exports

Posted 10 months ago

The British Veterinary Association (BVA) has raised serious concerns over the lack of information on UK exports of meat from animals that have not been stunned before slaughter.

Latest figures from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) indicate that 22 % of sheep and goats (3 million) are not stunned before slaughter. This is an increase from 2013 when it was estimated 15% (2 million) of sheep and goats were slaughtered without stunning.
