Canadian Food Inspection Agency
BSE in North America

Latest Information (as of December 31, 2004 - 14:00 EST)

a.. Consistent with our testing protocol, we are now conducting confirmatory testing using the OIE "gold standard" test for BSE . Confirmatory testing was initiated on December 30 and results are expected in two to four days.

b.. The suspect animal's farm of origin has been determined through the CFIA's investigation. While earlier information suggested the suspect animal might be ten years old, it has now been confirmed that the cow was eight years old.

c.. Similar to the two North American BSE -infected animals detected in 2003, this animal was born before the Canadian and American feed bans were introduced in 1997.
