Law360, New York (May 4, 2012, 1:45 PM EDT) -- In late April 2012, at a rendering plant near Fresno, Calif., a routine test of a dairy cow revealed the presence of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), commonly referred to as “mad cow disease”. The cow was one of 40,000 cows tested each year by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for the disease and is the first discovered in the U.S. since 2006.
Fortunately, the USDA confirmed the cow “at no time presented a risk to the food supply or human health.”
