UK in BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy) scare:

A UK butchers shop has been forced to request that customers return beef bought last year, after it emerged that a cow at risk of bovine spongiform encephalopathy was mistakenly delivered there. Jim Oliver butchers shop in Newport, Wales, received delivery of a cow born before the 1996 ban on ruminant material in cattle feed came into place. The delivery was in November, but it wasn't until December that officials at the slaughterhouse realized the error. However, the UK Food Standards Agency has reassured consumers that the cow tested negative for BSE, and that the health risk was "low".
