NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. – The first truckload of Canadian beef to enter the U.S. since the May 20 ban crossed the border on the afternoon of Sept. 4.

The Edmonton Journal reported a truckload of Ontario veal crossed from Ontario into New York.

Truckloads of Canadian beef had been locked out of the U.S. since a single case of mad cow disease surfaced on an Alberta farm nearly four months earlier.

The U.S. has since issued permits for the entry of boneless meat products.

The ban remains for live cattle and other meat products containing bones.
