Sukiya restaurant chain opposes plan to ease test for BSE


Tuesday, May 24, 2005 at 07:15 JST
TOKYO — The president of Zensho Co, operator of the Sukiya chain of restaurants, voiced opposition Monday to the government's plan to ease blanket testing of cows for mad cow disease.

"Testing all cows is necessary if food safety is the basic premise," Kentaro Ogawa said, taking a separate stance from many other Japanese fast-food restaurant operators who are in favor of the government plan, which will pave the way for resuming U.S. beef imports. These Japanese-style fast-food restaurants serve "gyudon" beef-on-rice bowls. (Kyodo News)
