Greetings OPEN FDA et al,

IN regards to ;

FDA News Release FDA launches openFDA to provide easy access to valuable FDA public data For Immediate Release June 2, 2014

Release Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration launched openFDA, a new initiative designed to make it easier for web developers, researchers, and the public to access large, important public health datasets collected by the agency.

In alignment with the recent Presidential Executive Order on Open Data and the Department of Health and Human Services Health Data Initiative, openFDA will make the FDA's publicly available data accessible in a structured, computer readable format that will make it possible for technology specialists, such as mobile application creators, web developers, data visualization artists and researchers to quickly search, query, or pull massive amounts of public information instantaneously and directly from FDA datasets on an as needed basis.

I find that very hard to believe, but for the sake of freedom, and education, I will give you the benefit of the doubt, and ask for the following ;

Since December 14, 1997, I have been following the mad cow aka BSE TSE prion follies. I have watched this on a daily basis, and debated with the best of the prion Gods. countless FOIA request for mad cow feed violations, bungled BSE tests, you name it.

For years now, it's been almost impossible to follow the mad cow feed ban violations, and exactly what they curtail. this all happened when you went to the OAI/VAI system, which the system is almost impossible to follow for the layperson. In fact, I cannot even access any data on that excel spread sheet anymore, since my December 15, 2013 report on the OAI violations.

Not like what the weekly mad cow feed ban violations use to be like, where the full investigation letter was published. I have complained about this since inception.

the tonnage from 2006 and 2007 of banned mad cow feed in commerce, some 10 years post feed ban, 10,000,000 pounds of blood laced meat and bone meal went out into commerce. just in one weeks warning letter in 2007. since then, you just don't see them, inspections are down, and all you have is this spread sheet which is impossible to find any substantial information about said violations, and at that, it takes hours to go through. when in the past, at different times, that information was freely available to the public, and on a weekly basis. now I know why all this was changed, but the question now is, has it changed back for the good of the people, with real information. I have seen this go one way and then the other a time or two, with different political party's.

to date, on the FDA's website, under BSE, all you get is old information under ruminant feed violations ;

*** so, how can I access this information on the mad cow feed ban warning letters, different violations of the feed ban, srm violations, and such, with this new easy access OPENFDA?

see examples of past on BSE TSE prion feed ban violations ;

last December, I sat down and went through the FDAs spread sheet where said violations are posted. and to date, we were still feeding cows to cows.

FDA PART 589 -- SUBSTANCES PROHIBITED FROM USE IN ANIMAL FOOD OR FEED VIOLATIONS OFFICIAL ACTION INDICATED OIA UPDATE DECEMBER 2013 UPDATE

OAI 2012-2013

OAI (Official Action Indicated) when inspectors find significant objectionable conditions or practices and believe that regulatory sanctions are warranted to address the establishment's lack of compliance with the regulation. An example of an OAI classification would be findings of manufacturing procedures insufficient to ensure that ruminant feed is not contaminated with prohibited material. Inspectors will promptly re-inspect facilities classified OAI after regulatory sanctions have been applied to determine whether the corrective actions are adequate to address the objectionable conditions.

*** BANNED MAD COW FEED IN THE USA IN COMMERCE TONS AND TONS

THIS is just ONE month report, of TWO recalls of prohibited banned MBM, which is illegal, mixed with 85% blood meal, which is still legal, but yet we know the TSE/BSE agent will transmit blood. we have this l-BSE in North America that is much more virulent and there is much concern with blood issue and l-BSE as there is with nvCJD in humans. some are even starting to be concerned with sporadic CJD and blood, and there are studies showing transmission there as well. ... this is one month recall page, where 10 MILLION POUNDS OF BANNED MAD COW FEED WENT OUT INTO COMMERCE, TO BE FED OUT. very little of the product that reaches commerce is ever returned via recall, very, very little. this was 2007, TEN YEARS AFTER THE AUGUST 4, 1997, PARTIAL AND VOLUNTARY MAD COW FEED BAN IN THE USA, that was nothing but ink on paper. i have listed the tonnage of mad cow feed that was in ALABAMA in one of the links too, this is where the infamous g-h-BSEalabama case was, a genetic relation matching the new sporadic CJD in the USA. seems this saga just keeps getting better and better.......$$$

THIS IS WHEN THE MAD COW FEED BAN WARNING LETTERS WERE WEEKLY, AND INFORMATIVE FOR THE PUBLIC ;

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH & HUMAN SERVICES PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICE FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION

April 9, 2001 WARNING LETTER

01-PHI-12 CERTIFIED MAIL RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED

Brian J. Raymond, Owner Sandy Lake Mills 26 Mill Street P.O. Box 117 Sandy Lake, PA 16145 PHILADELPHIA DISTRICT

Tel: 215-597-4390

Dear Mr. Raymond:

Food and Drug Administration Investigator Gregory E. Beichner conducted an inspection of your animal feed manufacturing operation, located in Sandy Lake, Pennsylvania, on March 23, 2001, and determined that your firm manufactures animal feeds including feeds containing prohibited materials. The inspection found significant deviations from the requirements set forth in Title 21, code of Federal Regulations, part 589.2000 - Animal Proteins Prohibited in Ruminant Feed. The regulation is intended to prevent the establishment and amplification of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) . Such deviations cause products being manufactured at this facility to be misbranded within the meaning of Section 403(f), of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act).

Our investigation found failure to label your swine feed with the required cautionary statement "Do Not Feed to cattle or other Ruminants" The FDA suggests that the statement be distinguished by different type-size or color or other means of highlighting the statement so that it is easily noticed by a purchaser.

In addition, we note that you are using approximately 140 pounds of cracked corn to flush your mixer used in the manufacture of animal feeds containing prohibited material. This flushed material is fed to wild game including deer, a ruminant animal. Feed material which may potentially contain prohibited material should not be fed to ruminant animals which may become part of the food chain.

The above is not intended to be an all-inclusive list of deviations from the regulations. As a manufacturer of materials intended for animal feed use, you are responsible for assuring that your overall operation and the products you manufacture and distribute are in compliance with the law. We have enclosed a copy of FDA's Small Entity Compliance Guide to assist you with complying with the regulation... blah, blah, blah...

atypical L-type BASE BSE

http://transmissiblespongiformencephalopathy.blogspot.com/2012/04/update-from-usda-regarding-detection-of.html


However, a BSE expert said that consumption of infected material is the only known way that cattle get the disease under natural conditons.

*** "In view of what we know about BSE after almost 20 years experience, contaminated feed has been the source of the epidemic," said Paul Brown, a scientist retired from the National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Stroke. BSE is not caused by a microbe. It is caused by the misfolding of the so-called "prion protein" that is a normal constituent of brain and other tissues. If a diseased version of the protein enters the brain somehow, it can slowly cause all the normal versions to become misfolded. It is possible the disease could arise spontaneously, though such an event has never been recorded, Brown said.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/case-of-mad-cow-disease-found-in-california-animal-but-food-supply-said-safe/2012/04/24/gIQAtelqfT_story.html

*** What irks many scientists is the USDA's April 25 statement that the rare disease is "not generally associated with an animal consuming infected feed." The USDA's conclusion is a "gross oversimplification," said Dr. Paul Brown, one of the world's experts on this type of disease who retired recently from the National Institutes of Health. "(The agency) has no foundation on which to base that statement."
