6 cattle tied to BSE animal shipped to U.S.

CALGARY - The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is trying to trace six
cows it says were born on the same farm as a BSE-infected animal and
then shipped to the U.S.


Spokesman Marc Richard said American officials have been contacted and
are looking for the cattle, which were born in the year before and after
the infected cow.

When the animals are found, they will be slaughtered and tested for
bovine spongiform encephalopathy. The CFIA announced on Jan. 11 that a
beef cow, born seven months after Canada put in place a ban on feeding
most cattle remains to cattle, was found to have BSE. It was the fourth
Canadian-born animal to have tested positive for mad cow. Richard said
the CFIA has confirmed that the infected cow had been given feed
containing meat and bonemeal that was produced before the August 1997
partial feed ban. While specified risk materials (SRMs), such as brains
and spinal cords, aren't allowed in cattle feed, blood products are.
This latest case was the second positive BSE test within 10 days, after
the CFIA confirmed on Jan. 2 that an Alberta dairy cow had also been
infected. At the end of December, the U.S. announced that it planned to
reopen its border to live Canadian cattle on March 7. It has said the
two latest cases wouldn't affect that decision, although the U.S.
Department of Agriculture is sending a team to investigate the latest
case, since it was born after the feed ban. The U.S. and 33 other
countries closed their borders to Canadian beef and cattle on May 20,
2003, when the country's first home-grown case of BSE was discovered.
Certain cuts of beef were allowed back into the U.S. three months later.
