Canada's food safety watchdog says a small amount of leftover contaminated feed was the most plausible cause of mad cow disease discovered in a cow last winter on an Alberta farm. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency says no part of the Black Angus beef cow entered the human food or animal feed systems. The report says no significant events could be linked to the discovery of BSE near Edmonton and no other sick animals were found. Harpreet Kochhar (KOH'-char), the CFIA's chief veterinary officer, says consumers and Canada's trade partners should be reassured. (The February case was the 19th in Canada. It led to a few countries placing temporary restrictions on Canadian beef imports. Kochhar says there is hope the report will get them to reconsider.)
