South Korea, U.S. disagree over U.S. beef import details
From the Korea Times - Korea, US Hit Snag in Beef Talks
SEOUL (Yonhap) _ South Korea and the United States failed to reach an agreement to allow the importation of beef products containing bone, the government said Tuesday. The two sides agreed to extend the talks to Friday, some South Korean officials said. South Korea banned U.S. beef imports in December 2003 after it was revealed a cow there had been affected with mad cow disease. The disease has been cited for causing the fatal Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease in humans.
