U.K. ban on beef older than 30 months of age set to end
Friday, September 16, 2005, 4:08 PM

by John Perkins

The United Kingdom has announced plans to end their ban on selling beef from cattle over thirty months of age. The law, in place since an outbreak of bovine spongiform encephalopathy in that nation during the mid-90's, would be scaled back to only cattle born prior to July 31, 1996.

Starting November 7, Cattle older than thirty months but less than nine years would be subject to testing for BSE. Beef producers in the U.K. believe this could induce the European Union to adjust a similar measure.
