h olding answer 7 January 2008

There are no additional export rules relating to lambs with mesenteric fat attached.

No immediate public health concern is attached to carcases dressed this way, provided both the lamb and the fat have been produced hygienically in accordance with European legislation, and passed as fit for human consumption after post mortem inspection.
