I just found this and feel so much better now!
Quote"Veneman said the Holstein, which could not move on its own, was found at a farm in Mabton, Wash., about 40 miles southeast of Yakima, and tested preliminarily positive for the brain-wasting illness on Dec. 9. Parts of the cow that would be infected -- the brain, the spinal cord and the lower part of the small intestine -- were removed before the animal went to a meat processing plant." I guess it is OK to put the rest of it in Hamburger for all the Fast Food Places?? This realy is strange and we trust the people who prepair our meats for re/sale!? Why did they not destroy the rest of it??? Another reason I won't eat at those kind of places and very few restraunts if any. Anything to make a extra buck or not lose one. Makes me sick! Mark H.

Re/read what I said it was ment to be worried. Is this what they call being protected only letting part of the cow be processed then have a 10,000+ lb re/call today and saying probley some of that meat has allready been eaten? Mark H.

thats the difference between what happened up here and whats goin on there now, the cow here never made it into the food chain ,down there it seems it did , thats scary, our system worked ,the only bad thing was that it took a month for all the tests to come back here , but at least they kept the cow out of the food chain,that meat there, is in your food chain and may have even been eaten by now or it may be up here or anywheres around the world as the US exports 25%of their cattle. scary

this is one of those times that makes being a weirdo vegetarian a good thing ;-) Although,I sincerely worry about my fellow man. I'm glad I am hanging out with all you red meat eaters that are raising your own beef or getting it from neighbors.

I do not trust processed food. Our meat is grown ourselves except beef. We buy that from the neighbor once a year & the beef is fine.

This horrid mad cow issue is just dangerous to human health.

Sorry my stomach does not do good with fast foods not used to them and boy the way they come out later is a bummer! I will stick with my wifes home cooked food. Kind of like drinking the water in Mexico you have to develope you inards for it. Mark H.

I took this to be taking the fast food out of the micro-wave since the nearest fast food joint we have is 30 mins away and it never tastes the same after being reheated!

Same here 31 mile round tip to one. Ever wonder why the car would smell so bad if you left some fast food in there over night? I do. Mark H.

I have seen some disgruntled cows before but I have only met one really Pi$$ off Bull.

the animal should of never went to the processing plant, the one they found up here never made it into the food chain , it was hanging in the packing house but had been there for some time while they were waiting for the test results about a month i think, they will have to quartine the rest of his herd and track the movement history of the cow and any other cows it ever came in contact with, probably will end up destroying a whole bunch of cattle.
