Ontario cow recalled from US under BSE rules

WASHINGTON — Canadian beef banned under mad cow disease rules was shipped to wholesalers in a half-dozen states and is now being recalled by a Wisconsin beef plant. The 842 kilograms of beef came from an Ontario cow, officials say. Inspectors in Ontario had determined the cow was eligible for shipment to the United States, but a Canadian audit two weeks later said the cow was too old to be allowed across the border.
