A concern about mad cow disease is hitting close to home. Some beef that was shipped to Illinois and Wisconsin is being recalled.
More than 18-hundred pounds of beef was banned under mad cow disease rules. An audit found out that one cow was too old to be used.
The U-S restricts shipments to younger animals because infection levels from mad cow disease are believed to rise with age. That cutoff is 30 months.
Green Bay Dressed Beef processed the cow and distributed the meat to wholesalers in Illinois and Wisconsin along with four other states.
