Will Mad Cow destroy the restaurant business?

The media has played down the serious impact that mad cow disease is posing in the USA. What is being done to safe guard our food supply? If you think about how important the Cow is as a resourse not only to feed people but in up holding an entire nations economy. I think this is pretty import stuff especially when you read all that's coming out of Europe about it.

  1. Yeah, I was curious as to why the articles I read on BSE never mention the US meat supply. I know that we feed our cows animal protein, so there must be some risk.

              Arpege will not be vegeterian, but will not serve beef. Lamb, pork, et al will continue to be on the menu.

            Dear Pat,

            You're not serious. Nothing could be more about food, our agriculture and our future eating habits.

        Without downplaying the seriousnes about this desease, no the Restaurant Business will not falter. But a good look should be placed at cattle ranching.
