LETTER: Sheep's brains on the menu

From Mr Steve Robson

Sir: Today, in your letters column, Dr H. C. Grant says that because sheep brains were removed from the carcasses they did not enter the human food chain and so posed no risk. They were removed and sold as a common food to be prepared in a variety of ways. Any French or English cookbook will give examples.

So where does that leave us?

Yours faithfully,

Steve Robson
