(Best Syndication News) – The US Department of Agriculture confirmed a new case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), also known as mad cow disease that came from a dairy farm in Central California near the city of Hanford.
The USDA discovered the infected cow at a rendering facility in California during a routine inspection. The cow was reported to not have shown any symptoms of stumbling before slaughter. The cow tested positive for atypical BSE, which is not usually caused by contaminated animal feed.
The USDA said that the cow was not introduced into the food supply and would not be of any danger to humans. Additionally, they said the mad cow disease would not spread through milk.
