American beef company wants to test all its cows for Mad Cow, Bush Administration says no!

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

A federal appeals court says the government can prohibit meat packers from testing their animals for mad cow disease.

Because the Agriculture Department tests only a small percentage of cows for the deadly disease, Kansas meatpacker Creekstone Farms Premium Beef wants to test all of its cows. The government says it can't.

Larger meat companies worry that if Creekstone is allowed to perform the test and advertise its meat as safe, they could be forced to do the expensive test, too.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on Friday overturned a lower court ruling that would have cleared the way for the testing. The appeals court said restricting the test is within the scope of the government's authority.

It's within the government's authority to keep people safe, healthy, and protected?

WTH

I suppose this what happens when industries run rampant unchecked and in many areas unregulated or not regulated properly. This is the 21st century where profit comes before people and profit put people in office. It's all about the money, isn't it?.. :P

That is quite insane. Of course, this is an example of 'good' government intervention?

Let's see: Creekstone wants to test its cows, probably at a private lab, and government says they can't?

we've had mad cow in our meat for years in Alberta and we're perfectly healthy and sane.

Although . . . . that would explain why Ralph Klein with a 10th grade education was our Premier for 14 years. . . . . hmmmmmm.

I'll get back to you on this once I've had a chance to examine this odd hypothesis further.

Oddly enough that pic of Ralphie boy resembles:
