Mad cow disease prompts Asian nations to halt Canadian beef imports

Mad cow disease prompts Asian nations to halt Canadian beef imports

An atypical case is rare and happens spontaneously, as opposed to classical cases caused by contaminated feed. The cow was euthanized on the farm and did not enter the food or animal feed chain, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency said on Tuesday.

The discovery of a case of distraught cow disease has provoked a few Asian nations to suspend imports of Canadian beef, a move that could additionally upset the worldwide meat exchange previously shook by the Covid-19 pandemic. China, South Korea and the Philippines have briefly stopped imports of beef from Canada, where an “atypical” instance of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), generally known as mad cow disease, was accounted for.

“These types of suspensions with an atypical case should be lifted quickly,” said Dennis Laycraft, executive vice president of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association. Moreover, those countries make up a small share of Canadian beef exports. More than 90% are shipped to the U.S. and Japan, though China, South Korea and the Philippines “are growing markets for us,” he said.

In September, Brazil halted beef exports to China due to reports of two “atypical” cases of mad cow disease, a move that was made as part of health protocols between the two countries. China lifted the ban three months later.
