Canadian Food Inspection Agency
BSE in North America


Latest Information


Latest Information (as of January 7, 2005 - 15:00 EST)

*

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency's (CFIA) investigation has
gathered a significant amount of information about other animals
of potential interest. The investigation is ongoing and the
numbers mentioned are based on currently available information.

*

The infected animal last gave birth in 2003 and 2004. Both calves
have died of causes unrelated to BSE. This finding concludes the
offspring component of our investigation.

*

The investigation has also determined that the birth cohort -
animals born on the farm of origin within 12 months before and
after the infected animal - includes 38 cattle of primary
interest. It is possible that these animals could have been
exposed to the same feed as the infected animal. Finding multiple
cases of BSE in a single birth cohort is rare, based on
international experiences. No additional cases were uncovered
during Canada's two previous investigations.

*

Of the 38 animals, 1 previously tested negative through the
national surveillance program after being reported as a downer. We
have located 9 more animals from this group. These animals have
been placed under individual animal quarantines.

*

We are continuing to investigate the locations and status of the
remaining animals. Given the age of the infected animal, it is
likely that some of the animals from the birth cohort are no
longer alive. We expect to begin euthanizing animals from the
birth cohort during the week of January 10.
