OTTAWA — The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has detected a case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy in the province of British Columbia. The C.F.I.A. did not provide details about the age or specific location of the cow, but did emphasize that no part of it made it into the food supply or feed chain.
This is Canada’s 12th case of B.S.E. The last case was identified this past February in a six-year old dairy cow.
