Mad Cow

NPR's Sarah Chayes reports on consumer panic over new cases of Mad Cow disease in France. With French shoppers shunning beef, the government this week banned beef-on-the-bone and the use of meat and bone-meal in all animal feed. The French beef industry, however, has been tightly controlled for years, and patrons of the country's many small butcher shops can trace their meat right back to the farm.
