Senate Votes to Ban Japan Beef Imports

US - Kobe beef should stay off U.S. menus if Japan won‘t buy American beef, the Senate has decided. In June, U.S. authorities confirmed a second domestic case in a Texas-born cow. Japan, in contrast, has found 20 cases of mad cow disease. U.S. regulators proposed last month to partially lift the ban on Japanese beef. "So I don‘t support depriving the Department of Agriculture with the funding it needs to make decisions based on sound science even while we need to send a loud and clear message to Japan."
