BSE checks `inadequate' in U.S.

JAPAN - U.S. safety precautions regarding mad cow disease have been declared inadequate by a Japanese government inspection team. The group, which also went to Canada, reported its findings Monday.
The team said the U.S. cow diagnosed with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), a Holstein in Washington state, was infected with the disease through meat and bone meal (MBM) at a ranch in Canada.
