The problem comes more and more not only since the Gottingen Declaration of agricultural and Veterinary Academy (AVA) in the Munsterland Horstmar empty not only since the Gottingen Declaration of the agricultural and Veterinary Academy (AVA) in the Munsterland Horstmar empty comes more and more the problem of the chronic form of a Botulinumtoxikose caused by Clostridium botulinum to the light of day. Animals get sick, but also pet owners become ill. And not taking seriously this policy and the agricultural associations. Prof. Dirk Dressler of the medical school has first described the transmission from animals to humans (zoonoses) and presented on the 9 main meeting of agricultural and Veterinary Academy (AVA) in Gottingen. 5% of German cattle farms were affected by the chronic botulism and would pose a risk for the food chain, so Prof. Dr. Helge Bohnel from Gottingen.
And the high risk of chronic Botulism in humans confirmed also Prof. Dressler (Hannover). Mrs Prof. Monika Kruger an seuchenhaftes event, sees in the creeping disease because it ill animals on a holding in a certain period of time and the disease spreads further in the operation, what however doesn’t seem so the Department of agriculture. “A disease under the animal diseases Act would not meet requirement”, from the Ministry of agriculture.
Infected animals can be slaughtered normally and get into the food chain, because the disease in slaughtered animals remain inconspicuous, meanwhile in the macroscopic veterinary investigation (the so-called meat inspection) they do not differ from normal animals. The MDR has in the show exactly (broadcast from the 20.4 2011-27th 2011) set up with the chronic botulism. An affected farmer reported by the factor disease of chronic Botulism in his dairy farm. He has lost more than 400 animals. The farmer family is ill. Here the link to the show: the Federal Agriculture Ministry sees until today no transferability of the animal on the People (zoonosis).
