Japan has a cow over American beef

22 August 2006

JAPAN - It's been weeks since Japan ditched its import ban on U.S. beef and the first shipment went on sale, but American beef is nowhere to be seen at supermarkets here - except this nation's five Costco stores. Many Japanese are worried about the safety of U.S. beef. Retailers here say they aren't about to waste their time carrying an unpopular product. Instead, meat-section shelves are filled with beef from Australia and Japan. Source: Press Telegram
