New mad cow case reported in Poland


Poland has detected another case of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), commonly known as mad cow disease, veterinary authorities said Wednesday.

The new case, found in Zerkow in western Poland's Wielkopolska province, brought the number of reported mad cow cases in the country to 40.

The new case, the second found in the province, was confirmed during a test before the cows were slaughtered and brought to the market.

Veterinary authorities have assured the public that all beef entering the market through legal channels had passed veterinary tests and was safe.

Poland reported its first mad cow case in 2002.
