This poster is in response to amendment #205 that has been added to a Regulation on the provision of food information to consumers. Although the majority of the Bill is concerned with labelling food products with nutritional information, amendment #205, tabled by German MEP Renate Sommer, requires all meat products derived from animals that have been slaughtered by dhabh without the use of pre-stunning to be labelled as ‘meat from slaughter without stunning‘.
