School children to continue eat beef

The Slovak Education Ministry does not plan to withdraw beef from school canteens despite last week's positive BSE test of one cow from the Vtáčnik cooperative farm.

The ministry said it was up to parents to decide if their children would continue to eat beef at schools. In February this year a directive was approved that allowed school canteens to withdraw beef from their menus if parents requested it through official school channels.

The ministry said that it could not make a decision to withdraw beef from all schools in the country unless the main hygiene body with the Health Ministry banned it centrally.
