U.S. denies having 2 BSE cases in 1997

CBC News http://cbc.ca
WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Agriculture admits there were
problems with the samples taken from two cows in 1997, but insists
the animals did not have bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), also
known as mad cow disease.

Asked about a CBC News report showing the samples used for testing
did not contain key parts of the animals' brains needed to make an
accurate diagnosis, the USDA's Ron DeHaven said, "We had two choices:
run the tests with the samples that we had, or not run them at all.
DeHaven is the administrator of the USDA's animal and plant health
"If we had something to hide, we could make an argument for not
running the samples at all," he said. "In this case, we chose to run
the samples with the tissues that we had and subject them to three
different tests to compensate for the fact that we may not have the
For years Canadian cattle producers have been suspicious about U.S.
claims that it has only found one cow that has been affected with
BSE. That cow, which originated in Canada, was diagnosed with BSE in
December 2003 in Washington state.
So far, four Canadian-born animals have tested positive even though
for decades animals have been shipped back and forth across the

The official tests were negative. But CBC news uncovered documents

Retired USDA scientist Dr. Karl Langheinrich says without those
tests, American authorities will never be able to rule out mad cow
disease. "It means you cannot make a diagnosis, a specific
diagnosis," he said.
Rob McNabb of the Canadian Cattlemen's Association says his
organization wants the USDA to investigate.
"What we would fully expect is that the USDA address the
allegations," he said.

One of the USDA's top officials told CBC News that the U.S. testing
program was never designed to catch every single case of mad cow
disease. It was simply meant to measure how much disease there is.
After testing thousands of animals the USDA believes if BSE exists,
it's at a very low level.
Next year, the U.S. plans a major reduction in its BSE testing
program, from a high of 300,000 animals to just 40,000.

Courage of Dr. Doi, American Whistleblower
Concerns raised about 1997 U.S. mad cow tests
Last Updated Apr 13 2005 02:30 PM CDT
GENEVA, N.Y. v The United States did not properly analyze two
suspected cases of mad cow disease in 1997, years before it showed up
in Canada and devastated this country's beef industry, a CBC News
INDEPTH: Mad Cow Disease
Suspected mad cow, from a USDA video.
Dr. Masuo Doi, the U.S. Department of Agriculture veterinarian who
initially investigated both 1997 cases, says he is haunted by fears
that the right tests were not done and that his own department did
not properly investigate whether the cow had BSE.
Doi is now retired and speaking for the first time about his
"I don't want to carry on off to my retirement," he told CBC's
Investigative Unit. "I want to hand it over to someone to continue,
to find out. I think it's very, very important ...
"How many did we miss?"
Doi's concerns are echoed by Dr. Karl Langheindrich, the chief
scientist at a U.S. Department of Agriculture lab in Athens, Ga.,
that ran the early tests on one of the cows.
Documents obtained by CBC show that the samples tested by the
department did not contain parts of the animal's brain critical for
an accurate diagnosis.
Langheindrich told CBC that the department will never be able to say
for sure what was wrong with the cow, though at the time it publicly
ruled out bovine spongiform encephalopathy.
"Based on the clinical symptoms and the description given by the
veterinarian, you can verify, yes, this animal had CNS, central
nervous system disease, but you can't specify it in your findings
further than that," he said.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is refusing to talk about the
cases, saying the documents provided to CBC speak for themselves.
1997 video from New York shows stricken cow
The scientists' comments raise new questions about how the U.S.
industry has been able to essentially escape BSE when Canada's much
smaller industry, observing almost identical safety and testing
practices, has had four cases in the past two years.
Part of the answer could be in a slaughterhouse in Oriskany Falls,
N.Y., which eight years ago may have become the home of the first
American case of mad cow.
Bobby Godfrey, who worked at the plant, remembers a cow that arrived
one day in May 1997.
"I thought it was a mad dog, to tell you the truth," he told
CBC. "Didn't know what the hell it was. Never seen a cow act like
that in all the cows I saw go through there. There was definitely
something wrong with it."
The suspect cow was recorded on USDA videotape, which has been
obtained by CBC News. It shows the animal trembling, hunching its
back and charging plant workers.
"Me and my vet, including our inspector, they thought [the cow] was
quite different," Doi told CBC. "They thought it was the BSE."
Key areas of brain not tested: documents
Documents obtained by CBC News show that the U.S. government was
preparing for the worst. Initial signs pointed to its first case of
mad cow disease, which would have immediate impacts on U.S. beef
exports to countries around the world.
But further tests on the animal came back negative, the USDA later
Dr. Masuo Doi, a retired USDA veterinarian.
The final conclusion from an independent university lab: The cow had
a rare brain disorder never reported in that breed of cattle either
before or since v not the dreaded bovine spongiform encephalopathy.
CBC News has now learned that key areas of the brain where signs of
BSE would be most noticeable were never tested. The most important
samples somehow went missing.
That information was contained in a USDA lab report that was left out
of the documents officially released by the department. It proves
that the scientist in charge of the case knew his investigation was
limited because of the missing brain tissue.
Second suspected case surfaces at same plant
With questions about the first cow still lingering, a second American
cow showed up at the same plant three months later with suspicious
symptoms. Videotape of that animal shows its head was bobbing and it
was unable to rise to its feet, setting off warning bells for mad cow
The second cow's brain was also sent for testing. Officials were
later told verbally that the samples had tested negative for BSE.
Doi made repeated requests for documentary proof of the negative
tests. To this day, he has seen nothing.
"How many are buried?" he wonders of other possible cases of BSE in
the United States. "Can you really trust our inspection [system]?"
For weeks, the USDA told CBC that it had no records for the second
cow suspected of having BSE in 1997. Then just a few days ago, it
suddenly produced documents that it says proves that a cow was tested
and that the tests were negative for mad cow disease.
But the documents also prove, once again, that there were problems
with the testing. This time, so much brain tissue was missing that it
compromised the examination.

The problems were so severe that one USDA scientist wrote that his
own examination was of "questionable validity" because he couldn't
tell what part of the cow's brain he was looking at.
Felicia Nestor, a lawyer who represents U.S. government whistle-
blowers, says she isn't surprised by what this CBC News investigation
"There have been too many times where information or tissues or other
evidence has just sort of disappeared, fallen through the cracks,"
said Nestor, who has been handling USDA-related cases for nearly 10
"There are a lot of holes. There are a lot of holes."
Commons committee hears coverup allegations
The results of the CBC investigation were broadcast on the same day
that a former U.S. agriculture inspector, during testimony at a House
of Commons committee, accused his own government of covering up
suspected cases of BSE.
On Tuesday, Lester Friedlander repeated a claim he has made before v
that cases of BSE surfaced in the U.S. long before the disease showed
up in Canada.
Friedlander, who was fired from his job as head of inspections at a
meat-packing plant in Philadelphia in 1995 after criticizing what he
called unsafe practices, says he is willing to take a lie detector
test to prove he is telling the truth.
The U.S. government has denied his allegations.
