Ireland (Other OTC: IRLD - news) said on Wednesday that a dead cow had been confirmed as having bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), known as mad cow disease, but said it had not entered the food chain and there was no risk to human health or beef's trade status. The animal tested positive for 'Atypical BSE', Ireland's agriculture department said in a statement, referring to the strain that it said has been identified more recently and which occurs spontaneously in older animals with a low incidence rate. "The disclosure of this case of Atypical BSE does not have any impact on Ireland's current OIE (Shanghai: 600278.SS - news) (World Organisation for Animal Health) BSE 'controlled risk' status or trade status," the department said.
