Mad Cow

Shoved off in the back of the paper, page 7A of the Journal Gazette was this little ditty:

The Bush administration on Friday urged a federal appeals court to stop meatpackers from testing all their animals for mad cow disease; a skeptical judge questioned whether the government has that authority.

The government seeks to reverse a lower court ruling that allowed Kansas' Creekstone Farms Premium Beef to conduct more comprehensive testing to satisfy demand from overseas.

Less than 1 percent of slaughtered cows are tested for the disease under Agriculture Department guidelines.

What, may I ask, are they trying to hide? Why can't someone use "more comprehensive testing"?? It's not "Where's the beef?" but "What's IN the beef?"
