vCJD cases have also occurred when people had surgery and surgical instruments were contaminated. Now sterilization procedures prevent that from happening.

???????????????????????????????????????

A third way vCJD was contracted was through a growth hormone made from the pituitary glands of cadavers. The mutated prion can't be killed with traditional disinfection procedures, so they were carried into the hormone pills. Now the hormone supplements are made artificially, so there is no chance of contamination.
