Mmmm... beefy...

Organic farm says, "Hey! Let's test all of our beef for Mad Cow! Make it a selling point!" The government says, "No."

Crazy as it sounds, the USDA prohibits private testing for mad cow disease. You must submit to the government testing procedures, which will test less than one percent of the cattle that we eat.

The cattle industry are worried that the 100% testing at the organic my mislead consumers "into thinking an untested cut of beef isn't safe." Shit, you mean that people might think that if their beef was untested for mad cow, then it might contain mad cow disease?

Damn, sorry. I was thinking again. I've been trying to quit, but it's so hard.
