Slaughterhouses are failing to adhere to guidelines which reduce the risk of mad cow disease

A meat inspector's union is raising concerns about the adherence by meat processing facilities to the rules designed to prevent the risk of spongiform encephalopathy or mad cow disease. It claims that older cows, brain tissue and spinal tissue have been processed with other meat which is against the regulations. Some doctors and scientists believe that hundreds and even thousands of deaths may have already been caused by mad cow disease but has been misdiagnosed as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease or Alzheimer's.
