Japanese Cow Tests Positive for Mad Cow
09.21.2004, 12:16 PM

A slaughtered Holstein cow in western Japan has tested positive for mad
cow disease, local government officials said Tuesday.

If the cow in Nara prefecture is confirmed to have the illness, it will
mark the 13th case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or BSE, in Japan.

So far only preliminary tests have been conducted on the 8-year-old
animal, but more precise examinations will likely be carried out in two
or three days, Nara health officials said.

The cow's meat and organs had not gone on the market, the officials said
in a statement, adding that the meat processing center where it was
dismembered would be thoroughly disinfected.

Japan confirmed its 12th case of mad cow last week after a 5-year-old
dairy cow tested positive for the disease in southern Japan.

Tuesday's announcement comes as Japan and the United States are
negotiating over mad cow testing standards aimed at lifting Tokyo's ban
on American beef imports imposed last December after the discovery of
the United States' first case of mad cow disease.

Japan's Food Safety Commission announced this month that the country
could import meat from untested cows 20 months old or younger without
endangering public health. Japan had previously urged U.S. producers to
test all cows.

Both sides are eager to strike a compromise to allow the import of U.S.
beef to Japan. The country was the most lucrative overseas market for
American beef, and Japanese consumers had been drawn to the U.S.
product, which is much cheaper than domestic beef.

Japan was the first country to confirm mad cow disease outside of
Europe, where it has devastated cattle farms.

Under a comprehensive screening system put in place after an outbreak
three years ago, Japan tests every animal that is killed before it
enters the food supply. Tokyo has also banned the use of meat-and-bone
meal - made from ruminant animal parts - in cattle feed, which
authorities believe led to the outbreak.

Eating beef from a diseased cow is thought to cause the fatal human
variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.

Nara prefecture is about 230 miles west of Tokyo.
