A quick survey of meat outlets in Brazil indicates Mad Cow Disease is not an issue here. Spokesmen for Jack's Fine Foods, 117 E. National Ave., and Page's Food Store, 120 S. Forest Ave., said they have had no questions or comments about the disease from their customers and both stores are selling about the same amount of beef as ithey did before Mad Cow Disease was discovered in the United States.
An informal poll of people who read The Brazil Times online edition (http://www.thebraziltimes.com) over the weekend indicated 100 percent confidence in beef available in the Clay County area.
Frank Jenkins, branch manager of ConAgra Foods, 195 N. Sherman, a wholesale meat outlet, said, "We have had a few accounts asking questions." But ConAgra's local orders of beef have not been affected, either.
