Canada confirms BSE case in Alberta

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency confirmed a new case of mad cow disease. The animal in question was a six-year-old dairy cow from Alberta.

The cow was born after Canada and the United States introduced a ban in 1997 on cattle feed that contained ingredients made from rendered cattle and other ruminants.

The federal agency said no part of the animal's carcass had entered the human or animal food supply.

"Based on science, it is not expected that this case should impact access to any of Canada's current international markets for cattle and beef," the CFIA said.
