Mad cow records are target of inquiry

WASHINGTON — The government has begun a criminal investigation into whether records were falsified in the nation's first case of mad cow disease, the Agriculture Department's inspector general said Wednesday.
In a separate investigation, the General Accounting Office is checking the feed industry's compliance with a Food and Drug Administration rule aimed at keeping the infectious protein linked to the disease out of cattle feed.
