BSE in North America


Latest Information


Latest Information (as of January 14, 2005 - 12:00 EST)

* Case 2 (Confirmed January 2, 2005)
o Based on records of feed purchases and use, the CFIA has
confirmed that the infected animal, born in 1996, was
exposed to feed rations containing meat and bone meal.
o

This feed was produced before the 1997 feed ban, when the
inclusion of meat and bone meal in ruminant feeds was
allowed. This finding concludes the feed component of the
investigation.

* Case 3 (Confirmed January 11, 2005)
o An additional 15 cattle from the infected animals birth
cohort have been identified and placed under individual
animal quarantines. All live animals from the birth cohort,
currently 37 cattle, will be tested.
o

Investigators are collecting information pertaining to feed
used on the farm of origin. The CFIA is tracing records from
the farm of origin and investigating feed retailers and
manufacturers.

*

CFIA officials expect to release the details of a review of
Canadas feed ban next week. International animal health and feed
experts are expected to participate in the review.
