Beef in Bulgaria not properly tested for mad cow disease

BULGARIA - Beef sold in Bulgaria since June 2004 has not been certified free of mad cow disease because the test used is not officially recognised by the European Union, mad-cow expert Roumen Valchovski said Friday. "Beef and sheep meat has been tested but certificates were not issued due to the fact that the test used has not been officially recognised by the European Union. Tons of meat went to the market in violation of European norms", Valchovski, a virus expert and medical doctor, told AFP.
