In late 2001, a domestic bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) incident critically damaged beef bowl sales. In late 2003, Japan suspended imports of American beef due to a BSE incident in Washington, cutting off Yoshinoya's main source of short plate (fatty beef) that is the main component of its beef bowl. This forced Yoshinoya to terminate beef bowl sales in Japan for the first time in its history on February 11, 2004. (

))In December 2005, Japan agreed to remove the restriction on importing beef from the United States. A letter to customers was then put up in restaurants, promising that the beef bowl would return in a few months. In January 2006, imports stopped again because inspectors found banned cattle parts in a veal shipment from the United States. In June 2006, Japan lifted the ban on imports again, and on July 31, 2006, Yoshinoya reposted the letter promising to resume serving the beef bowl in about twOn September 18, 2006, Yoshinoya brought back their beef bowl for one day as "the beef bowl revival festival" (牛丼復活祭, gyūdon fukkatsusai). This "revival", however, meant that its beef bowls would be available only the first five days of the month in October and November. On December 1, 2006, they began serving beef bowls daily, albeit at limited hours. These hours were extended once during special campaigns in February and December 2007. By March 17, 2008, Yoshinoya announced that they would resume 24-hour sales of the beef bowl, rolling out through their then 1040 stores nationwide through March 20, 2008. An announcement of banned cattle products in a Californian beef import on April 21, 2008, did not halt the company's plans, as they felt they had enough stock from other sources to avoid a recall.

Taiwan had a large population that did not eat beef due to its unique local culture. There were plenty of stands offering low-priced food. Paying full attention to local cultural backgrounds, notions, and customs, Taiwan Yoshinoya endeavored to offer products and services that would be popular with locals and tailored the restaurant to the local conditions and environment.

In those days, procuring beef was very difficult, given that there was a limit set on beef imports, and that other food service businesses were experiencing growing demand for beef. Yoshinoya Co., Ltd. established a U.S.-based subsidiary, Yoshinoya USA, Inc., on March 15, 1973 for the purpose of setting up a base for purchasing beef. (Source: www.yoshinoya-holdings.com)
