FDA toughens rules to cut mad-cow risks

The federal government yesterday bolstered the feed rules that are considered the most important "firewall" against the spread of mad-cow disease and announced new regulations to keep the infection out of food, cosmetics and nutritional supplements.
Officials said the changes will make a small risk even smaller, but consumer advocates said the government still isn't doing enough to protect livestock and the public from the fatal, brain-wasting disease.
