No Kosher Meat in the Netherlands

The new method of determining whether a cow is unconscious has led to a situation where kosher meat is not available in the Netherlands.  This was announced by H. Loonstein, the lawyer representing the only kosher butcher shop in the Netherlands.  According to the experts of Wageningen University, Loonstein says, the method used by the Dutch authorities concerning the eye reflexes in cows is unsuitable in 85% of the cases as an indicator of unconsciousness.  Loonstein says that the Dutch Food and Commodities Authority is using an erroneous method.
