Japan may remove cows aged 20 months or younger from test


Saturday, September 4, 2004 at 00:15 JST
TOKYO  A key advisory panel on mad cow disease will recommend Monday
that the government remove beef cattle aged 20 months or younger from
testing for the disease, a move that would end Japan's three-year-old
blanket testing regime, sources close to the panel said Friday.

The ad hoc panel on prions, a subcommittee of the government's Food
Safety Commission, will put forward the recommendation in the form of an
interim report at a meeting of the panel members Monday, the sources
said. (Kyodo News)

I understand that rumors have spread that President Bush and
the Japanese Prime Minister came to an agreement to try and
re-open trade sometime after July elections in Japan, but before
the U.S. elections so GW et al would get the cattle vote. Seems
many people in Japan think of the Prime Minister as President Bush's
puppet. Sad to think that Bush et al got to Japan. WE will have to
wait and see. I don't think the Japanese people even want the
US beef. Just politics at it's finest and more BSeee...TSS
