Beef Wars

NPR's Kathleen Schalch reports on the latest trade dispute between the United States and Europe. The US is demanding that Europeans either lift their decade-old ban on hormone-treated beef or face high tariffs on their exports into the US. Americans are losing more than five hundred million dollar in sales a year because of the beef ban, but Europeans fear the meat isn't safe.
