Isn't UK beef banned for import into the US and Canada because of "Mad Cow Disease," or has that been lifted?

Stitchawl
I believe it was lifted quite some time ago. British beef is perhaps the safest in the world these days - there's a national database which tracks the breeding history of every animal.

EDIT: According to this article, US beef is imported into the EU, but only with guarantees that no growth hormones have been used. There is a ban on importing beef with growth hormones.

Of course, of course
And no one should eat a horse,

That is, of course
Unless the horse
Is the famous Mister Ed!

A horse is a horse
Of course, of course
And Mr Ed is great source
For you main meat course
You never eaten a horse?

Well, listen to this:

Cannot be; Big Macs are the same the world over!

Quote:
the Big Mac was renamed the Maharaja Mac and was originally made with lamb instead of beef; however, along with the company's other items it is now made from chicken.[13][14]

As a junk food lover, I often eat at McDonald's all over the world. Unfortunately, there actually ARE some countries where there is a definite taste difference in the Big Mac. In Thailand they are almost inedible! (Thai beef is horrendous!) They would be better served using horse meat!

The French started eating horse meat after the revolution. When you're starving because your ruler is more concerned with his own comforts than with taking care of its people it's a recipe for trouble. And of course starving people will eat anything. I've never had it but I understand at least as late as WWII people could buy it at the local butcher shop.

Now what IS the difference between a Buffalo and a Bison?

Spoiler:

Have you ever tried to wash you hands in a Buffalo?
