(Salt Lake City-AP) -- The Utah Cattlemen's Association says consumers can confidently feed beef to their families.

That comes in the wake of the first apparent case of mad cow disease in the United States.

Brent Tanner is executive vice president for Utah Cattlemen.

He says this is an isolated case and says the contaminated part of the cow was NOT in the muscle cuts of the infected cow.

That means you can continue to have that steak, roast and ground beef.

He urges consumers to get the latest information on a new Web site that has info on mad cow disease. The address is w-w-w-dot-b-s-e-info-dot-org.
