BERLIN, Sept 10 (Reuters) - A German air force plane loaded with 15 tonnes worth of ready-to-eat meals earmarked for flood victims in New Orleans was refused entry into the United States last week, a government spokesman said on Saturday.
Confirming a report in Der Spiegel news magazine, the spokesman said the Luftwaffe Airbus was loaded with 9,000 military "eimannpackung" ("one-man packages") but was grounded in Germany because it did not get U.S. flight clearance.
The spokesman said he did not know the reason for the decision by U.S. authorities. He said the refusal to allow German aid had since been lifted.
Der Spiegel news magazine reported that U.S. authorities had blocked the import of German military rations that contained hamburgers, goulash, sausages, pasta and jam due to fears of mad cow disease, or bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE).
The magazine reported that relief flights from Britain and Russia were also denied entry for the same reason.
PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION. IT ASKS MR BUSH TO ALLOW ALL HELP OFFERED TO THE KATRINA HURRICANE SURVIVORS.
THIS IS TO ASK HIM TO PUT AWAY POLITICS AND ALLOW HELP TO ARRIVE.
