Latest Information


Latest Information (as of January 21, 2005 - 16:00 EST)

* Case 2 (Confirmed January 2, 2005)
o The Canadian Food Inspection Agency today announced the
conclusion of its investigation

into the case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE)
detected on January 2, 2005. The investigation has fully
traced the birth cohort, recently born offspring and feed to
which the affected animal may have been exposed early in its
life.
o Nine animals from the birth cohort have tested negative for
BSE. One other birth cohort animal had tested negative in
November 2004. Most of the remaining animals have been
confirmed to have previously died or been slaughtered.
o

The offspring component of the investigation determined that
all calves of interest had died of causes unrelated to BSE.
The feed line of inquiry confirmed that the affected animal
was exposed to feed containing ruminant meat and bone meal
that was produced before the 1997 feed ban.

* Case 3 (Confirmed January 11, 2005)
o Test results on 33 of the birth cohort animals have been
received and all were negative for BSE.
