Japan to ease all-cow mad cow testing Aug 1


Saturday, July 2, 2005 at 07:10 JST

TOKYO — The Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry revised a bylaw Friday to ease Japan's blanket testing of cows for mad cow disease starting Aug 1, ministry official said.
The change in the bylaw under a special law on measures on mad cow disease will set out a new standard requiring testing only slaughtered cattle over 20 months of age for the brain-wasting disease, formally known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy. (Kyodo News)

Japan had the best BSE/TSE testing protocol in the world. THIS is a step backward. must have caved into industry demands. NEXT, Japan consumer will have USA mad cow beef shoved down there throat, and we know how USA testing for BSE goes in USA. cover-up at all cost, then cover-up some more...
