    the threat to victims of the hurrican Katrina in the US is over now, but the reason for blocking distribution of british army ration packs apparently isn't according to the americans.

    they still don't want our beef!!!

    whatever food critics say about british army ration packs, when you are living without cover in the great outdoors they are very welcome!

    when you wipe out all cattle that only live to a certain age and repopulate, why is it that a ban on our beef is still in effect? it was down to contaminated feed and the problem is gone now. only the long term effects from eating that contaminated beef is to worry about now.

    some world partners that makes us Brits! One day this problem might be over, in the meantime the vast majority of us have no problems eating british beef, when we can afford it!

    But remember, it works both ways. From the same article....

    .... and not everybody in the US agrees with it. ;)

    yeah, theres some wacky stuff going on and i'm not sure what is real denial through health issues and which is political

    british ratpacks have loads of different flavours (well, alright, 3 or 4!) and the little tub of beef paste for your dog biscuits could easily have been thrown away by the users. if they care to return them, i'll take a load of their hands, i'm used to eating them and they are fine even if american soldiers don't agree :)
