TEST BEEF IN THE USA FOR MAD COW DISEASE
Petition Background (Preamble):
Recently the USDA announced it will be increasing slightly the number of cattle tested during 2002, but according to experts it is still wholly inadequate.
While the U.S. tests one out of every 18,000 cows slaughtered, Germany tests one out of three, and Japan tests every cow before it goes to market.
WE urge you to enact legislation to safeguard the American consumer by greatly increasing the number of cows tested for BSE.
