Second BSE-Positive Cow Identified in the United States
On June 24, 2005, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced receipt of final results from The Veterinary Laboratories Agency in Weybridge, England, confirming BSE in a cow that had conflicting test results in 2004. No parts of the animal entered the human and animal food supply. As a result of this BSE positive animal, the USDA plans to develop a new laboratory testing protocol to evaluate future inconclusive BSE screening test results.
