Expert: New rules make beef safer

LARAMIE, Wyo. - New federal regulations designed to prevent cattle infected with mad cow disease from entering the food supply should reassure consumers at home and abroad that U.S. beef is safe, a University of Wyoming food- safety expert said.
The regulations were put in place after the nation's first case of mad cow disease, or bovine spongiform encephalopathy, was found last month in a dairy cow slaughtered in Washington state.
