Stricter meat labelling in the EU
Starting on 1 July, the EU will be enforcing its new guidelines for the labelling of meat products. They provide a more specific definition of `meat` and how the contents of meat products should be described. The transition period which had started in January runs out.

Among the important changes is the definition of `meat`. Under the new regulation, only muscles attached to the animal`s bones will qualify as meat; fat and innards must be labelled as such. Producers must also clearly state whether the meat is pork, beef or lamb.

Any products labelled before 1 July under the old system may still be sold in stores, but the member states now have the right to enforce the guidelines and introduce sanctions for products labelled after the deadline.

David Byrne, EU health and consumer protection commissioner, has announced he also plans to submit a special proposal for more detailed labelling of poultry products. Recently several cases were documented in Great Britain and Ireland, in which processed poultry products were inaccurately described. `Chicken filets` were discovered to have traces of pork and beef proteins, as well as other ingredients.

Leishmania spp. in Bats from an Area Endemic for Visceral Leishmaniasismembers
The multihost parasites Leishmania spp. infect a broad range of wild mammalian species including bats. Several species of bats have adapted to a variety of food resources and shelters in urban areas. This study aimed to detect Leishmania spp. DNA in bats present in forest fragments located in metropolitan areas endemic for leishmaniasis in Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul (MS), Brazil. Which role do these animals play in leishmaniasis?
