Summary:
It is far from clear whether adequate measures are being taken in America to protect the people from this terrifying disease. The major problem is a tug-of-war between the desires of the meat processors to maximize profits and the people to be protected. The USDA has so far maintained a solid record which may be tested in the near future.

Abstract:

It is far from clear whether adequate measures are being taken in America to protect the people from this terrifying disease. The major problem is a tug-of-war between the desires of the meat processors to maximize profits and the people to be protected. The USDA has so far maintained a solid record which may be tested in the near future.
