Gosh, it's funny how schools are either reassuring us that their meat never came 'downer' cows or removing beef entirely from their menus, since there was "no risk" from that "one single cow" eaten by U.S. consumers. In Colorado, Jefferson County schools are banning beef, as are elementary and middle schools in Aspen. The administrator in charge of the latter decision said, "I know the government says beef is safe, but I don't believe the government has much credibility right now." Additionally, in Washington state, the superintendent of the Toppenish School District pulled beef from his schools' menus. But of course the fast-food-based meals many of these schools still serve are far from being "no-risk" as well.
