Japan unlikely to end beef ban

13 October 2004

JAPAN - Japan is unlikely to resume U.S. beef imports this year because of objections from the country's ruling Liberal Democratic Party, according to a report published Wednesday. Japan's Agriculture and Health ministries have proposed exempting cattle younger than 21 months from testing for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) - "mad cow disease" -- because, according to the ministries, young cattle rarely test positive, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun reported.
