Canada says a new case of mad cow disease in the U.S. will not affect trade between the two countries.
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said Tuesday both countries have implemented science-based measures to protect animal and human health. The agency also noted that U.S. officials have confirmed that no part of this animal's carcass entered the food system.
The United States closed its border to Canadian beef in 2003 after sick cows were detected in Canada.
Dennis Laycraft, the executive vice president of Canadian Cattlemen's Association, says there's no reason for any country to ban U.S. beef imports because now the rules for market access are science based and not just knee jerk reactions.
He says mad cow cost Canada's industry between $6 and $10 billion.
