Mad Cow Pool

Rebuilding beef trade with Japan could take years
Anybody want to bet how long it is before they find more infected beef and halt importation from the US again?
My money’s on three months or less, and this is due one simple factor: Quality control on the US side simply isn’t up to the task of screening every piece of meat – this is an economical impossibility – but the Japanese side will be testing with a vengeance. If meat from an infected cow slips through the US side, it most probably will be found on the Japan side.
