Canada Has a Case of Mad Cow Disease

TIME

A beef cow in Canada was found to have mad cow disease, officials said Friday, the first case of the disease in the country since 2011.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is investigating the cow’s history, Reuters reports, and officials said the infected cow hadn’t been processed for consumption by humans or other animals. Cows are typically infected after eating materials from the brains or spinal cords of sick animals. When humans eat an infected cow, they can become ill with a variation of the disease.

Officials said this case should not impact Canada’s beef exports.
