GAO: Ban on feed linked to mad cow not enforced

WASHINGTON - The Food and Drug Administration is not doing enough to enforce the ban on feed linked to the spread of mad cow disease, congressional auditors say. The Government Accountability Office, the investigative wing of Congress, said that while the FDA has made improvements in its management of the feed ban, "various program weaknesses continue to undermine the nation's firewall against BSE." The FDA, in response, said it believed its inspection approach to the feed-ban rule was adequate.
