Yahoo! News - Japan, Korea to Halt U.S. Beef Imports|
Japan and South Korea (news - web sites) halted imports of U.S. beef on Wednesday after a cow in Washington state tested positive for mad cow disease, depriving American exporters of two of their largest overseas markets.Good. More beef for me. It was one cow. One out of millions. You probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than contracting BSE.
Singapore and Malaysia followed suit and authorities in other Asian nations were also deciding whether to invoke bans.
