I'll tell you what is wrong with the add, it basically says that if the US has another case of BSE, our food will be unsafe. Unless you can explain to me how the precautionary measures Canada has taken are inadequate in comparison with ours, you don't have a leg to stand on OT.
"Four Canadian born and raised cattle have been identified with mad cow. Two since January."
"Mad cow is fatal in animals and linked to a fatal disease in humans. Yet, USDA bureaucrats are rushing to re-open the U.S. border to Canadian beef and cattle."
THAT SAYS CANADIAN BEEF IS UNSAFE!
THAT ALSO SAYS U.S. BEEF WILL BE UNSAFE IN THE EVENT THAT WE HAVE ANOTHER CASE OF BSE.
That's how incredibly naive R-CALF is!
They're not even smart enough to use the term BSE. They have to use the "FEAR MONGERING TERM" of "MAD COW". Typical of the deceptive, "end justifies the means" organization they really are.
SH- The number one difference is Canada has 4 origin cases in a herd that is 1/20th the size of the US herd-one of these born after their feed ban was in effect-- the US has none...The difference is that the risk factor in their cattle and beef is higher....Should we not tell consumers the truth? Can you say there is NO human risk from Canadian beef? If so then you are better than all the scientists, because none say this......I suppose we should go back to the old NCBA way of thinking and baffle them with bullsh*t and educate them thar folks to the way we want them to think......
Thats right - I forgot- You don't believe in telling people the truth about the deceptive use of the USDA stamp- or believe that people should know what country their food comes from-- unless they are rich enough to cater in "branded beef"......Don't Ask-Don't Tell...........
Canada should test all until they find out the extent of the problem and can show its eradicated-- and if we find a domestic case we should do the same.......
