Canadian Mills Blamed for U.S. Mad Cow

WASHINGTON - The feed that infected two North American cows with mad cow disease probably came from two mills in Canada, officials there say. But they may never know for sure that the feed caused the infection, one official says.
The mills used meat and bone meal that may have contained infectious protein from cattle imported from Britain, said Dr. George Luterbach, an official of a mad-cow working group in the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. He said Canadian privacy law prohibits disclosing the identity of the mills.
