Ban over, US beef returns to Japan

ARIZONA - Released from a two-year ban based on fear of "mad cow" disease, American beef headed back to Japanese grills on Monday. The imported meat was to appear at a popular barbecue chain and a private banquet put on by U.S. producers. The planned feasts followed a barrage of limited shipments over the weekend triggered by the Japanese government's long-awaited decision last week to ease the embargo on U.S. beef imposed in December 2003.
