Dean Blames Bush For Mad Cows
Dean press release
AMES, IOWA – Democratic Presidential candidate Governor Howard Dean, MD traveled to Ames and criticized the Bush administration for its approach to Mad Cow Disease and called on the USDA to immediately implement measures to restore confidence in the US beef industry. Ames, Iowa is the home of the National Veterinary Services Lab which confirmed this case of BSE or Mad Cow.
“The recent discovery of Mad Cow Disease in Washington raises serious concerns about the ability of this administration to protect the safety of our nation’s food supply and the health of our rural economies that depend on agriculture exports,” Governor Dean stated.
“US beef producers are the best in the world and I have full confidence in their ability to produce a high quality and safe product. But Mad Cow Disease is a serious concern that has been undersold by this administration and their industry allies,” he added.
