OTTAWA — The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has confirmed bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in a cow in British Columbia.

Safeguards prevented any part of the animal’s carcass from entering the human food chain or any potentially infective parts of the animal’s carcass from entering the animal feed chain.

The animal was detected through Canada’s national BSE surveillance program.

Investigation under way

The food agency has launched a comprehensive investigation in an effort to determine the birth farm of the animal.
