This is a message to buyers that are buying beef products for our consumption to be careful.
This post is not intended to poke fun or suggest that this is not a serious issue, it is to use a well known poem form the past to hi-lite the serious nature of this issue.
The poem Purple Cow has been attributed to many authors over the years and also rephrased by many, coming to represent something that is not normal. And having mad cow disease in our food chain is definitely not desired or normal.
So here is my derivation of the original by Gelett Burgess in 1895.
I never saw a mad cow
I hope I never see one,
But I can tell you this right now:
I’d rather see than eat one.
Ah yes, I wrote “The Mad Cow”
I’m Sorry now I wrote it
But I can tell you Anyhow
It could kill you if you ate it!
To our friends at the FDA, please solve this issue ASAP and insure industry buyers and their consumers that they do not have to worry about this type of contamination in our food chain.
We look forward to and appreciate your comments
