Latest Information (as of June 30, 2006 - 17:00 EST)
Preliminary screening tests conducted by the Province of Manitoba and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) have detected a potential case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in a mature cross-bred beef cow born well before the 1997 implementation of Canadaís feed ban.
No part of the animalís carcass entered the human food or animal feed systems. Samples have been sent to the National Centre for Foreign Animal Disease in Winnipeg for confirmatory testing. Final results are expected next week.
