Canada finds madcow in dairy cow
OTTAWA—The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) on Friday confirmed it has found bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in a six-year-old dairy cow from Alberta province.
No part of the carcass entered the human food or animal feed systems, Alice D’Anjou, spokeswoman for the government agency, told AFP.
“We had a confirmed case in a 77-month dairy cow in Alberta, found as part of our BSE surveillance program,” she said. “We sent out an industry notice and informed some of our international trading partners.”
“We do not expect it will affect our trade relations,” she added.
It is Canada’s 18th case of mad cow disease.
