Where's the beef? Not in Japan

Thanks to W:AVLWC for this head's up: A beef supplier named Creekstone wants to re-enter the market in Japan. In fact, they're willing to pay for the BSE testing of imported beef required by Japanese authorities. But the Bush administration won't let Creekstone do it. One wonders why. Could it be that if "mad cow" disease is found in Creekstone beef, American consumers will demand testing of all beef?

I'll be watching this one closely. When I make chili, I like to scald my guests without actually murdering them.
