Jamaica will import US beef despite BSE case

JAMAICA - Jamaica will continue importing beef from the United States, despite the confirmation there of a case of mad cow disease, an official said. The U.S. Agriculture Department on Friday confirmed the disease had been found in an animal that, at least 8 years old, had been born before the United States and Canada banned cattle parts in cattle feed, which is how the disease is believed to have spread.
