Farmland National Beef safe to eat

January 5, 2004

Moultrie - National Beef, which owns Farmland National Beef in Moultrie, does not buy cattle from Washington State.

National Beef comes from Midwestern feed yards. Officials say all those feed yards comply with mandatory FDA feeding regulations.

National Beef gets meat from steer and heifers, typically less than 24 months of age. BSE, or Mad Cow Disease, affects older cattle, cows that are two and a half year's old or older.

Farmland National Beef purchases cattle, processes the meat and distributes to Walmart super centers.
