Mad Cow suspicions persist
Wire Services |
"Government and beef industry officials urged consumers Saturday not to worry about the safety of meat as they await conclusive results of tests to determine whether the United States has a new case of mad cow disease... Tom Devine, legal director of the Government Accountability Project, a private watchdog group, maintained Saturday that the USDA surveillance is 'systematically flawed' and that the potential new case 'is only the tip of the iceberg.' He said the system is 'designed to miss many of the mad cow suspects' and that the consensus of the science community is that 'the sample is too small even to draw conclusions about trends.'"
