The cows may be mad, but the French are furious: They may have unknowingly imported vast amounts of animal feed banned in Britain for fear it might carry mad cow disease. The science magazine Nature, citing British government statistics, reported Thursday that Britain sold France thousands of tons of potentially contaminated feed from 1989 to 1991 that it could not sell at home.

Champagne is flowing in large quantities in Britain, which remains the biggest market for the beverage outside France, the Champagne Bureau said. In the first six months of 1988, Britain popped its way through 8.7 million bottles--12% above the same 1987 period--stretching its lead over the United States, where sales slipped by nearly a quarter to 5.1 million bottles.
