Condemnation of meat and offal in 65 selected abattoirs in England and Wales is reviewed. Returns cover about 14 per cent of animals slaughtered for food. In the decade under review, a marked reduction in losses caused by fascioliasis was noted in cattle and sheep, while other parasitic conditions show no decrease. Abscesses continue to be substantial cause of loss in cattle and pigs. Condemnation on account of bruising has increased.
