BOVINE SPONGIFORM ENCEPHALOPATHY IN CANADA

See also: 15 August 2003

Emergency report

Information received on 6 January 2005 from Dr Brian Evans, Executive
Director, Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Ottawa:

Date of the report: 6 January 2005.

On 17 December 2004, a private veterinarian reported a "downer" cow and
took samples as part of the surveillance programme for bovine spongiform
encephalopathy that focuses on 4Ds: diseased, dying, down and dead
animals, at the farm level.

Rapid tests were performed at the provincial TSE(1) Laboratory in
Edmonton, Alberta, and confirmed by immunohistochemistry at the National
Centre for Foreign Animal Disease (NCFAD), Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The carcass was held and did not enter the human or animal food chain.

As a result of an ongoing investigation, the herd of origin has been
identified in the province of Alberta and a birth date of 5 October 1996
establishes the birth as prior to the 1997 ruminant feed ban. The cow
was resident in the birth herd until 1999 and did not calve in 2004.

Restrictions have been placed on the birth herd pending completion of
the tracing of birth cohorts and 2003 progeny.

(1) TSE: transmissible spongiform encephalopathy
