Canada 9th BSE case blamed on feed

Canada's ninth case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), announced in February, was most likely caused by suspect feed, according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

The CFIA said in a statement that the latest case did not indicate an increased risk of BSE, or bovine spongiform encephalopathy, in Canada.
The eighth case of BSE, found on August 9 on a commercial beef cow on a farm in northern Alberta, Canada was also most likely caused by feed ingredients.
