Mad Cow Case Found In U.S. for First Time (washingtonpost.com)
Mad Cow Case Found In U.S. for First Time (washingtonpost.com): "A Holstein cow slaughtered in Washington state earlier this month was infected with mad cow disease, marking the first time that the dreaded illness that devastated the beef industry in Britain has been detected in the United States, officials announced yesterday.


Meat from the animal, which was slaughtered Dec. 9, traveled through three processing plants before a test revealed the problem 13 days later. But officials at the Department of Agriculture insisted that infectious portions of the animal were removed at the slaughterhouse and diverted to a rendering plant. "
