US lab finds no mad cow in cow. British lab finds mad cow disease in cow. Cow is now mad. USDA then changes tune yet says the US consumer should have every confindence in it's food supply. In other news, we've found nukes in Iraq. :rolleyes:

I understand that the USDA tries to save pennies by using a method of detection which often gives false positives or negiatives even when the cow is infected. Just another way the Bush administration is keeping us safe. :rolleyes:

The good news is the media has so crucufued the Administration for being cheap asses with public safety that they've announced they'll switch to the slightly more expensive but far more accurate test... in two years. :(
