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. Dave Solverson, president of the Canadian Cattlemen's Association, says producers will be heartened by the report. (The February case the 19th in Canada prompted a few countries to place temporary restrictions on Canadian beef imports including South Korea. Solverson and the CFIA's chief veterinary officer, Harpreet Kochhar (KOE-char), say there is hope the report will get them to reconsider.)
