Press cuttings and broadcast transcripts relating to the contamination of products made with mechanically recovered meat from cattle infected with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) and the risk of the disease being transmitted to humans in the form of Creutzfeldt - Jakobs disease (CJD) through the consumption of infected beef.

The file is labelled 'Daily Presscut Product 2 BSE 14.5.90, 13.6.90' which suggests the cuttings were collected for use in the 'Daily Presscut' compilation of press cuttings.
