Older Canadian Cattle to Enter the US

After more than 4 years of the mad-cow scare, the US is planning to open its border to Canadian cattle born after March 1, 1999, as well as meat from them, saying they pose no health risk. 

"The likelihood of BSE becoming established in the U.S. cattle population by allowing additional commodities from Canada is negligible," said John Clifford, the U.S. Agriculture Department's chief veterinarian.

On the other hand, groups such as the Food and Water Watch, a non-profit consumer rights group, believe the decision is too premature and poses health risks as long as US officials are "more concerned about facilitating trade than protecting public health."
