“Mad cow disease” Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy found in dead Welsh cow on British farm

first_img Share whatsapp A dead cow on a farm in Wales was infected with Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), also known as “Mad Cow Disease”, the Welsh government has confirmed.  The location of the farm has not yet been identified, but Rebecca Evans, deputy minister of farming and food, said the case was “isolated” and posed no health risk to humans or other animals: It did not enter the human food chain and the Food Standards Agency and Public Health Wales have confirmed there is no risk to human health as a result of this isolated case. Officials are now working alongside the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and the Animal and Plant Health Agency to investigate the circumstances of the case.  Evans said the other cows on the farm, including the dead cow’s offspring, were being isolated and would be “destroyed within EU requirements”. The case was identified as a result of a government rule requiring all dead farm animals over the age of four to be tested for BSE. Identification of this case demonstrates that the controls we have in place are working well. Beef across the UK continues to be produced in compliance with the World Organisation for Animal Health rules. BSE was first recognised in cattle in the UK in 1986 and, by 1993, more than 1,000 cases were being reported each week. In total around 180,000 cases were found throughout the entire outbreak, involving more than half of the dairy herds in the UK.  In May 1995, 19-year-old Stephen Churchill died from variant Creutzfeld-Jacob disease (vCJD). A further three people died that year, and in 1996 scientists confirmed there was a link between the two diseases. At its peak in 2000, 28 deaths were recorded as being caused by vCJD.  by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailGameday NewsNASCAR Drivers Salaries Finally ReleasedGameday NewsSwift VerdictChrissy Metz, 39, Shows Off Massive Weight Loss In Fierce New PhotoSwift VerdictPost FunKate & Meghan Are Very Different Mothers, These Photos Prove ItPost FunMaternity WeekA Letter From The Devil Written By A Possessed Nun In 1676 Has Been TranslatedMaternity Weekzenherald.comMeghan Markle Changed This Major Detail On Archies Birth Certificatezenherald.comBridesBlushThis Is Why The Royal Family Kept Quiet About Prince Harry’s Sister BridesBlushEquity MirrorThey Drained Niagara Falls — They Weren’t Prepared For This Sickening DiscoveryEquity MirrorTheFashionBallAlica Schmidt Is The Most Beautiful Athlete To ExistTheFashionBall Sarah Spickernell “Mad cow disease” Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy found in dead Welsh cow on British farm whatsapp Thursday 1 October 2015 5:20 pm More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgPorsha Williams engaged to ex-husband of ‘RHOA’ co-star Falynn Guobadiathegrio.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFort Bragg soldier accused of killing another servicewoman over exthegrio.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comMan on bail for murder arrested after pet tiger escapes Houston homethegrio.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.org Show Comments ▼last_img
