US Agricultural Research Service (ARS) Investigators Report that the 2006 Alabama Case of BSE was Propably Unrelated to Contaminated Feed

In August 2008, several ARS investigators reported that a rare, genetic abnormality that may persist within the cattle population "is considered to have caused" BSE in the atypical BSE animal from Alabama in 2006.
