Foot-and-Mouth

NPR's Julie McCarthy reports from London that as the foot-and-mouth outbreak in Britain spreads, more countries are banning animal products from the European Union. Amid growing criticism of the way it's handling the crisis, the British government is responding by slaughtering more animals. Farmers complain, however, carcasses are already piling up.
