BSE #12 … and counting

by

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) confirmed bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in a six-year-old dairy cow from Alberta on Tuesday. 01

The agency is reported to have said that no part of [this] infected animal’s carcass entered the human food or animal feed chains and that Canada’s “controlled risk” status will not be affected. 02

“If a person consumes any part of the animal or animal parts from a diseased cow it always turns into the fatal brain wasting variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease also known as vCJD.” 03
