Canada confirms another case of mad cow disease

Canada on Wednesday confirmed its 10th case of mad cow disease since 2003.
The latest case was discovered in a dairy cow in the western Canadian province of British Columbia. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said no part of the animal entered the human food or animal feed systems.
The agency said it appears the 5 1/2-year-old cow was exposed to a small amount of infected material likely during its first year.
The agency is now checking other animals born about the same time and trying to find out how the infection occurred.
In April of last year, another British Columbia dairy cow was found with mad cow disease, and the Food Inspection Agency said that case was caused by contaminated feed.
