appologies in advance for any mistakes or feux pas in posting a news first time doing so.


"WASHINGTON - Exhaustive tests have confirmed mad cow disease in an animal apparently born in the United States, officials said Friday. It is the second case of the disease confirmed in this country, but Agriculture Secretary
Mike Johanns stressed there was no threat to public health."

link here p/20050624/ap_on_go_ca_st_pe/mad_cow

What really pisses me off is how Johanns expressed such amazement and shock that some inspector general had gone over his head and ordered an additional round of tests.

And the US wonders why Japan and South Korea don't want American beef? I live in Japan and admit that I miss cheap US beef, but I think I'll be happy to stick w/ the Aussie stuff that's thuroughly tested for the time being.

Thanks for the reply

Kinda interesting in that when talking to my folks the other day, they had no idea that there was a ban on US beef in Japan.

In any case, guess a few other people beat me to the punch on this topic, so feel free to to lock this thread Mods.
