CFIA wouldn't allow the proposed Peace Tender Beef co-op to test, although they purportedly had a guaranteed Japenese market for their beef if allowed 100% testing.
When I asked a CCA rep why they weren't pushing for testing all animals, the response I received was "We don't want to raise the bar on the US testing system" and like Forrest Gump that's all he had to say about that.
Oh, yeah, and also got the ol' "Border's Opening Soon" song and dance again. Sure. You bet. That and a quarter will get me a local phone call.
I am left to draw my own conclusions on why, but lacking any concrete evidence don't feel it's worth sharing them.
However, the AMI's response to CFIA's proposal to ban SRM's from ALL animal feed with the justification of wanting an integrated testing system for North America (or something along that line) does speak volumes, at least to me.
Anyone else have any ideas on this?
