searching for Text within files.

i have a problem with a spamassassin rule. I know which rule but i don't know which file the rule is saved into. The rule name is BIZ_TLD
#cd /etc/mail/spamassassin
#cat * | grep "BIZ_TLD"
and it's coming back with this:
score BIZ_TLD           1.022   # Increased from 0.7: JGRAY 21-Feb-2005
i simply want to remove the above line but i don't know in which file it's located.
i tried:
#cat *.cf | grep -l "BIZ_TLD"
which is coming back with this output:
(standard input)
any ideas?

would output the filename in which the matching text was found.
