S.Korea delays Canada meet after new mad cow case

SOUTH KOREA - South Korea said on Tuesday it had decided to delay a working group meeting with Canada to discuss resuming Canadian beef imports, after Canada confirmed a new case of mad cow disease. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said on Monday a 6-year-old cow from an Alberta dairy farm tested positive for the brain-wasting disease, making it the fourth reported home-grown case in the country. "We need to re-examine the mad cow disease control system of Canada," Seoul's Agriculture Ministry said in a statement.
