Japan finds fresh violation of US beef import rules

JAPAN - Japan has said it will ban imports of beef from one US factory for violating safety guidelines against madcow disease reached after a bitter bilateral feud. Faced with threats of sanctions, Japan in July agreed to resume US beef imports on condition the cattle were 20 months old or younger at the time of slaughter, with brains, spinal cords and other risky parts removed.
