U.S. may have concealed BSE test results

US - In his Friday announcement of the confirmation of the second case of mad cow disease in the United States, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Mike Johanns said an experimental test run along with the second standard test in late November showed "abnormalities" with the cow. The announcement suggests the Agriculture Department may have hidden an important discovery for seven months. The concealment of the discovery of abnormalities that suggested possible bovine spongiform encephalopathy infection has raised concerns among U.S. consumers.
