Japan Dissatisfied With U.S. BSE Test Expansion Plan

27 February 2004

JAPAN - Japan isn't satisfied with a planned measure by the U.S. government to boost testing for mad cow disease as it does not meet Japanese demands for blanket testing of all cattle, Kyodo News reported, citing a top bureaucrat at the farm ministry.      Japan will determine whether it will resume beef imports from the United States based on a premise that the U.S. government will conduct blanket testing and remove all special risk materials from cattle, said Mamoru Ishihara, vice minister of agriculture, forestry and fisheries.
