Panel's BSE report supports lifting of ban on U.S., Canadian beef

JAPAN - Japan set in motion procedures to lift a ban on U.S. and Canadian beef imports after a study panel said young cattle from the two countries have a very low risk of mad cow disease infection. The panel of experts on the disease, set up by the Food Safety Commission, said Tuesday the low risk among slaughtered cattle aged 20 months or younger can be ensured if dangerous parts that could transmit the disease are removed.
