"haggis still illegal" news and stories
The U.S. government is reconsidering its ban on Scotland's national dish haggis.
The Department of Agriculture has shot down rumors that the sausage – made by rolling the cooked innards of a sheep (its heart, liver and lungs) in oats and pepper, then stuffing it in cow's intestine and boiling it – will be allowed in the United States any time soon.
The Scottish delicacy has been barred from this country since the late '80s mad cow outbreak in the U.K.
At the request of Scottish officials, the USDA is reviewing the risks of the dish and the ban on it, according to The Associated Press.
USDA spokeswoman Lindsay Cole issued a statement saying reports that the ban will be lifted are incorrect and though the latest science is being examined, no timetable has been set for a decision.
