Company Can’t Test for Mad Cow, Bureaucrats & Courts Say

by Hans Bader on September 3, 2008

Earlier, I and Alex Harris criticized the Agriculture Department for banning a company from testing for mad cow disease.  The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals has now upheld that ban.  Law Professor Jonathan Adler laments the unfortunate consequences of the ruling here.  I earlier discussed how this ban may harm American exports and beef consumption here

The court ruling came in the case of Creekstone Farms Premium Beef v. USDA
