South Korea To Halt Canadian Beef Imports Over Mad Cow Disease Discovery


On Tuesday, South Korea’s Agriculture Ministry announced it was halting imports of beef from Canada following the discovery of a mad cow case in the country. Last week, Canada confirmed a case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), also known as mad cow disease in Alberta. This is the first time in six years that a case of BSE has been confirmed in Canada.
