Subject : More Mad Cow in the United States


Name : cranston36 Date : 2005-08-30 03:20 View : 50 : 0 : 2

Canadian cattle were banned from import to the United States in May 2003 shortly after Canada discovered mad cow disease in their herd. Last July the United States government allowed Canadian imports to resume.
Since then the weakness of the USDA has been exhibited by the fact that Canada has recorded two more cases of mad cow disease.
A third was discovered in the United States and was a cow that had been imported from Canada. Recently more banned beef (under mad cow rules) was imported into the United States from Canada, slaughtered, packaged, shipped to wholesalers and sold and delivered to retail supermarkets.
To give an idea of the weakness and misleading character of the USDA this is what Steven Cohen, spokesman for the Agriculture Department?셲 Food Safety and Inspection Service said, "There is a minimal chance, given the age of the animal and the health of the animal, that there was any risk whatsoever."
Just what language was he speaking in?
The USDA never reveals the name of retail supermarkets involved in food recalls.
U.S. and Canadian officials said that cow wasn't the only problem in a shipment of 35 cows from Ontario: Included were eight pregnant cows, which the United States prohibits. The cows were processed but the calves were destroyed.
Often leftover animal parts and ?쁡estroyed calves??are ground up to be included in feed for other livestock such as pigs and chickens.
The USDA is one of the largest recipients of federal and state grants.

So what happens when a "slunk" falls out on the kill floor? do we rail the heifer out or throw it in the barrel????

Interesting how that post leaves out the fact that a positive U.S. born cow was found too.... That the U.S. also has BSE ...

There's sure a lot of selective memory about these days isn't there? :shock:

That's pathetic Oldtimer. Cruising Korean chat sites in hoping to find opinions as twisted as yours and then try pass it off as a News release.

I think the reason there is so much mad cow in the U.S. is because man keep drinking all milk


Jon [2005-08-30 10:43]
The first case of Mad Cow Disease in Canada came from the US in the first place.


Sammmy O [2005-08-30 12:36]
OK. I'll b serious. I think the reason there is Mad Cow Disease breaking out all over the world is because cattle are fed animal byproducts (often from the same species) under filthy conditions.

Bill- Kato - Big Muddy-- They definitely do have their facts all mixed up...

Bill- I don't do the searching--let the computer do that--have it set up, so it will give me an e-mail of all the listings daily on BSE--kind of gives a guy the big picture of what the rest of the world is saying and thinking.....
