Limitations due to the BSE disease

Because of the BSE cattle epidemic , headmeat may be processed without restrictions in animals that are fit for slaughter, but the skull without a lower jaw must be disposed of in animals older than 12 months (Cat1, SRM, EU Regulation 999/2001). Thus, the meat of the palate can only be used for ox-mouth salad in animals under one year old.
