A Fremont meat processing company has laid off 50 employees following a dropoff in business due to the mad cow scare.

Fremont Beef Company, which sells most of its product to Japan, has been directly hit by Japan's ban on U.S. beef imports.

Company spokesman Steve Buell hopes that most or all employees that were laid off will be rehired once the ban is lifted.

The plant employs about 150 workers, when at full staff. Fremont Beef is owned by two Japanese companies.
