US and Canada BSE risk status could be downgraded

The risk status of the US and Canada for bovine spongiform encephalopathy could be reduced after the world organization for animal health, the OIE, gave a preliminary recommendation that it be downgraded from "undetermined risk", to "controlled risk". "Undetermined risk" is the most serious ranking in the OIE three-level risk assessment system for the potential of transmitting BSE, while "controlled risk" is the middle ranking. "Negligible risk" is the least serious ranking in the system.
