No, there is no reason to be concerned in regards to either meat or milk at the store. Any part of cattle that could contain infectious agents are routinely removed and destroyed at the slaughterhouse. These are parts of nervous system, brain and spinal cord.

It is also forbidden to use bones or support tissue from meat from cattle, sheep and goats for the production of mechanically deboned meat.
