News Alert: Brazil warns of suspected case of mad cow desease

"The suspicion has already been submitted to laboratory analysis for confirmation or not and, depending on the result, the corresponding actions will be applied immediately," it was officially reported.

The last time Brazil detected a case of atypical "local cow disease", which is generated by an individual mutation, was in September 2021, which led to the suspension of meat shipments to China for several months.

If the case is confirmed, Brazil must officially report it to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) and, in accordance with the provisions of the sanitary protocol signed with China, suspend shipments until the authorities of the Asian nation decide otherwise.
