It was about this time last year when the first case of Mad Cow was reported in the US. Since then, the expected drop in beef sales has not materialized; in fact, despite import bans from many overseas countries, the overall sales of beef has increased. But hold on--there may be a second case of BSE. We'll have to wait a few days to see...
And remember: our courageous USDA is testing a whopping 0.42% of the total beef supply.
