Mad Cow Disease Found in Washington State #38246

A report in New York Newsday says:
quote:
Washington -- A single Holstein on a Washington state farm has tested positive for mad cow disease, marking the disease's first suspected appearance in the United States, the Bush administration announced Tuesday as it assured Americans their food is safe. . . .

Veneman said the Holstein, which could not move on its own, was found at a farm in Mabton, Wash., about 40 miles southeast of Yakima, and tested preliminarily positive for the brain-wasting illness on Dec. 9. Parts of the cow that would be infected -- the brain, the spinal cord and the lower part of the small intestine -- were removed before the animal went to a meat processing plant. . . .

Veneman said the Agriculture Department has had safeguards in place since 1990 to check for mad cow disease and 20,526 cows had been tested in 2003 in the United States.

Testing 20,526 cows is supposed to make people feel better? I checked the USDA reports and found that 2.43 million cows were slaughtered in the US in November of this year, 3 million in October and 3.14 million the month before. Over one year that comes to about 36 millions cows. If I did my math correctly, that means only one cow in about 1800 is tested for BSE. I wouldn't want to trust that kind of odds. Those who continue to eat meat are taking a huge risk.

The CBC TV News is talking about it from a Canadian perspective.

It looks like Canada and Japan and others will be closing its borders to beef import from the USA in the same way that Japan and the USA and others did to Canada.

The USA is saying the same thing that Canada said in that it is an isolated case, however, the USA still closed its borders to Canadian exports in the same way that Canada will now be closing its borders to USA exports.

What's that saying?

What goes around, comes around? I believe that if the USA can close it's borders to Canada when something like that happens, so should Canada be able to and should close it's doors to USA for the very same reasons. K ser rah ser rah.

Yes, Canada should rightfully have the same health concerns that the USA claimed.

It will be interesting to see how this all unfolds.

One thing for certain, Japan seems to be treating both countries the same in relation to their own health concerns.

I found the following quote from the following CNN web site link very interesting:

http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/12/24/mad.cow/index.html

quote:

The sick animal came from a farm in Mabton, Washington, about 40 miles southeast of Yakima. It was a so-called "downer" animal, meaning it was unable to walk when it reached the slaughterhouse, which under USDA rules triggers automatic testing.

Congress considered but rejected legislation this year that would have banned the use of any "downed animal" parts for human consumption.

I suspect that Congress now wishes it didn't reject that legislation which may now cost them billions of dollars in loss beef exporting revenu.

I am also surprised that for health reasons Congress would even allow such an obviously sick animal to be slaughtered and processed for meat consumption.

I just hope all this mad cow stuff will inspire people all over the place to consider a vegetarian regimine and that our church will respond and give them answers to their questions. I couldn't care less about the political aspects, but rather see this as a great chance to share the right arm of the gospel with those who don't know better. In our church we along with two others are the only vegetarians there.

Greetings to all the church in the Maritimes.

It really is pretty hypocritical how the U.S. slams the borders shut whenever another nation has a case of BSE, but now that we have one here the gov't. scrambles to assure everyone that "everything's OK, the meat supply's safe".

Yeah right. Just how do they know this for certain? (The answer is, they don't. They can't.)
