It doesn't bother me. It'* not our fault, they lied about the cows age from canada. It shouldn't have been here legally. The new measures they're implementing should help.

Chances are pretty rare, you have to eat tissue from the brain or the spinal cord.

What is interesting is that if you become infected, it can take up to 10 years for symptoms to show.

I think the scare is way overrated. How many millions of cattle in the U.*., and they find one or two with it?? C'mon. I haven't cut back at all...

I'm lucky if I can have one steak a week! Especially with the recent price hike.
