U.S. Reports Case of Atypical Mad Cow Disease
It was the seventh reported detection of BSE in the United States since 2003
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced on Friday an atypical case of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), commonly called mad cow disease, in an older beef cow at a slaughter plant in South Carolina.
USDA said the animal never entered slaughter channels and the agency did not expect any trade impacts as a result.
It was the seventh detection of BSE in the United States since 2003 and all but one have been atypical.
