Court asked to block wider testing for mad cow
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Bush administration is urging a federal appeals court to keep meatpackers from testing all their cattle for mad cow disease.
Government lawyers told a three-judge panel Friday they should reverse a lower court ruling that allowed Kansas-based Creekstone Farms Premium Beef to conduct more comprehensive testing to satisfy overseas customers. The Agriculture Department currently tests less than 1 percent of slaughtered cows for the disease. It argues that more widespread testing does not guarantee food safety.
