BSE: OIE keeps insignificant risk for Brazil

Brazil continues with the sanitary status of "insignificant risk" for Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), known as Mad Cow Disease. The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) has ended the suspicion involving Brazil, which came up last week after a case in Mato Grosso, in a 17 year-old cow. The animal was slaughtered and all material which could present any risk of contagion was cremated.
Following a bilateral agreement protocol, Brazil suspended temporarily beef exports to China and must wait until the Chinese authority concludes the evaluation of the information transmitted about the episode.
The OIE reported that there will be no change in Brazil's risk classification for the disease and that it will remain as insignificant country of risk, the best possible for BSE.
"Brazil has been working in identifying and controlling diseases so that shipments and the quality of our products are maintained. Brazilian slaughterhouses are committed to the sanitary rules of each importing country and, according to the OIE, Brazil is classified with the lowest degree of risk for Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy", says Tiago Fugolin, commercial director of KIT International.
