CFIA Launches Feed Investigation
March 28, 2009 - The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has launched an investigation into potentially contaminated feed products from a rendering facility in Alberta. The safety of the Canadian food supply is not affected.
The vast majority of the potentially contaminated feed has been identified, contained and will be disposed of. The company is working closely with the CFIA to quickly identify and dispose of all potentially contaminated feed.
Information to date indicates that a limited amount of poultry feed may have been inadvertently contaminated with specified risk material (SRM) earlier this month. The feed potentially contaminated with SRM poses no health risk to poultry and does not affect the safety of poultry meat and eggs.
In cattle infected with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), SRM are the tissues known to harbour the disease. These tissues are removed from all cattle slaughtered for human consumption, and are prohibited from use in animal feed, pet food and fertilizer.
As the investigation proceeds, updates will be provided on the CFIA web site.

heck, here in Texas, FDA et al thinks as much as 5.5 grams of SRM is just fine for a heifer weighing about 600 lbs.
and in reality, 5.5 grams is enough to kill a small herd of cattle with mad cow disease. ...
Thursday, March 19, 2009 MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF POUNDS OF MAD COW FEED IN COMMERCE USA WITH ONGOING 12 YEARS OF DENIAL NOW, WHY IN THE WORLD DO WE TO TALK ABOUT THIS ANYMORE $$$
LET's go back to the infamous TOKEN, charade, that happened on January 30, 2001, at the Texas Purina feed lot around Gonzales. NOW remember, this thing was set up from the word go, as to some big showing that the FDA was DOING SOMETHING BIG. let's look at exactly what was said then, and then i will run some figures by you, of what banned mad cow feed has gone into commerce, of which most was fed out. but, as wrong as the comments made were about what amount of infectious material will kill a cow in this statement, even if you were to go by those wrong figures of about .......... oh what was it ???
''FDA has determined that each animal could have consumed, at most and in total, five-and-one-half grams - approximately a quarter ounce -- of prohibited material. These animals weigh approximately 600 pounds.''
you can take that with how ever many grains of salt you wish, but i read that as saying, it was only 5 1/2 grams, and the old cow ways 600 pounds, so know way that even if the feed was tainted, there was not enough to cause disease. the fda, usda et al, knew at that exact moment when they wrote that statement, they knew then that the 5 1/2 grams was enough to kill a small herd of cows. it was old science. but again, they chose to deceive. THIS WAS 2001, and it's now 2009, and they still are choosing to deceive, and the new administration appears willing to continue the USA mad cow charade. NOW, since the charade at the purina mill in 2001, i am going to list a few figures of suspect, banned mad cow feed that went out into commerce, even in 2008, 2007, 2006, back a few years, and you can compare, what enormous amounts of banned suspect mad cow feed and other products continue to go out. when you consider, and they knew all along, that .005 grams is lethal, my God, how much of this poison was consumed?
see long list of years and years of feeding SRMs here in the USA all the way up to 2008, the USA is still feeding cows to cows, srms to cows, and other species. ...TSS
