An order preventing the heads of sheep and goats going into the food chain will come into force on Sunday, 15 September 1996.

The Heads of Sheep and Goats Order 1996 will make it an offence to sell any part of sheep or goat heads for human consumption. This is a precautionary measure based on the advice of the Spongiform Encephalopathy Advisory Committee which was announced on 24th July 1996.

Over ninety nine per cent of heads are already destroyed and do not go into the food chain.
