Canada, U.S. and Mexico agree to import standards related to mad cow
Advertisements [?]
REGINA (CP) - Canada, the United States and Mexico have agreed to a single North American import standard related to mad cow disease, Federal Agriculture Minister Andy Mitchell said Tuesday.

The standard, negotiated at a recent meeting in Mexico City, reflects guidelines laid out by the World Organization for Animal Health. It says that, as long as the materials most likely to cause mad cow disease are being removed from the animal at slaughter, and as long as animals are not being imported from herds where the disease has been found, then it should be safe for animals to move across borders.

"It's a very important agreement between the three countries," Mitchell said.

"You can trade cattle between countries so long as you take certain steps and we are please that we have all three countries on side."
