Mexico blocks live cattle from Alberta

Mexico has banned imports of live cattle from Alberta, following the discovery of Canada's 14th case of mad cow disease (BSE) in the province last week.

Mexico is banning imports of beef and dairy breeding cattle -- but not stopping the flow of beef into the country.

Canada and Mexico are both considered as controlled-risk status for BSE as recognized by the World Organization for Animal Health, or OIE.
