Taiwan Opening to Canadian beef conditional: Health Ministry BSE CJD UPDATE

Opening to Canadian beef conditional: Health Ministry 2014/01/17 17:30:08

 

Taipei, Jan. 17 (CNA) Taiwan's upcoming market-opening measure for Canadian beef will not cover cattle parts with a high risk of carrying mad cow disease, the Ministry of Health and Welfare said Friday.

 

These high-risk parts include internal organs, skulls, eyes, brains, spinal cords and ground meat, which will remain barred from entering Taiwan, said Chiang Yu-mei, deputy director-general of the Food and Drug Administration under the ministry.

 

The Ministry of Economic Affairs announced earlier in the day that the government is to allow imports of Canadian bone-in beef and other meat products from cattle under 30 months of age.

 

At present, only boneless beef from cattle under 30 months of age is allowed into the country.

 

Chiang noted that Canada, which last reported a bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) outbreak three years ago, is currently listed as a country with "controlled BSE risk" by the World Organization for Animal Health.

 

The decision to open Taiwan's market to Canadian beef was made after a risk assessment, discussions and four inspection tours of the North American country's cattle industry, with a focus on feed and slaughterhouse sanitation, she said.

 

The conditions set by Taiwan for Canadian beef imports will be the same as those for beef from the United States, another BSE-affected country, she added.

 

Based on data from 2012, as much as 94 percent of beef demand in Taiwan is met by imports, with 46 percent from Australia, 24.76 percent from the United States, 23 percent from New Zealand and 0.3 percent from Canada. Other smaller suppliers include Panama, Nicaragua and Costa Rica.

 

Agriculture Minister Chen Bao-ji said the opening will have little impact on Taiwan's cattle industry, which has only a 6 percent market share.

 

Agreeing with Chen, Chang Chuan-chung, chairman of the Taiwan Beef Industry Progress Association, said domestically produced beef is well-received among local customers and enjoys a stable market share because Taiwan's cattle industry does not use leanness enhancing drugs in raising the animals.

 

Legislators, meanwhile, expressed their support for the plan.

 

Legislative Yuan Speaker Wang Jin-pyng said the conditional opening of Canadian beef imports takes into account the safety of consumers while demonstrating Taiwan's commitment to fair trade.

 

The move should be helpful to Taiwan's bid to join the Trans-Pacific Partnership, he said.

 

Hsu Chung-hsin of the opposition Taiwan Solidarity Union said the opening falls in line with the most-favored-nation principle of the World Trade Organization, given that Taiwan has already opened its market to U.S. bone-in beef.

 IN reality, this does fall in line with the WTO/OIE/USDA inc mad cow BSE trade policy. exactly what is does, it allows Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy TSE prion disease to be accepted as part of the commodity itself. yes, this allows the free trading of the Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy TSE prion mad cow type disease. what it also does now, it has made it acceptable for death to come from different commodities, if the _documented_ body bag count does not get to high

 

(key word here is documented, because if it all stays sporadic, problem solved $$$, remember, all iatrogenic CJD is, is sporadic CJD, until the route and source of the iatrogenic event that took places is proven, documented, and then put in the academic domain, which very rarely ever happens do to the long incubation, and then trace back there from),

 

and IF, the trace back to any friendly fire cannot be proven, then the BSE MMR is what it is, minimal risk, which means that some risk is acceptable. this now includes the iatrogenic (friendly fire, pass it forward, medical, surgical, dental, tissue, blood) spread of the TSE prion mad cow type disease around the globe, and you never have to leave home. just think about that for a while.

EDMONTON - Some of former Alberta premier Ralph Klein's most colourful quotes — and the reactions they elicited:

 

SNIP...

 

"This all came about through the discovery of a single, isolated case of mad cow disease in one Alberta cow on May 20th. The farmer — I think he was a Louisiana fish farmer who knew nothing about cattle ranching. I guess any self-respecting rancher would have shot, shovelled and shut up, but he didn't do that." — Klein recalls how the mad cow crisis started and rancher Marwyn Peaster's role. The premier was speaking at the Western Governors Association meeting in Big Sky, Mont. September 2004.

 

"The premier meant that in an ironic or almost a sarcastic way." — Klein spokesman Gordon Turtle.

 

---

 

"You would have to eat 10 billion meals of brains, spinal cords, ganglia, eyeballs and tonsils." — Klein speaking in Montreal in January 2005 on the risk of humans contracting mad cow disease.

 

---

 

"I would offer $5 billion to have a Japanese person to come over here and eat nothing but Alberta beef for a year. And if he gets mad cow disease, I would be glad to give him $5 billion — make it $10 billion — Canadian." — Klein speaking after Japan closed its borders to Canadian beef.

Manitoba veterinarian has been fined $10,000 for falsifying certification documents for U.S. bound cattle and what about mad cow disease?

 


 

 

CENSORSHIP IS A TERRIBLE THING $$$.

 

Canada has had a COVER-UP policy of mad cow disease since about the 17th case OR 18th case of mad cow disease. AFTER THAT, all FOIA request were ignored $$$.

 

THIS proves there is indeed an epidemic of mad cow disease in North America, and it has been covered up for years and years, if not for decades, and it’s getting worse $$$.

Increased Atypical Scrapie Detections.

 

Press reports indicate that increased surveillance is catching what otherwise would have been unreported findings of atypical scrapie in sheep. In 2009, five new cases have been reported in Quebec, Ontario, Alberta, and Saskatchewan. With the exception of Quebec, all cases have been diagnosed as being the atypical form found in older animals. Canada encourages producers to join its voluntary surveillance program in order to gain scrapie-free status. The World Animal Health will not classify Canada as scrapie-free until no new cases are reported for seven years. The Canadian Sheep Federation is calling on the government to fund a wider surveillance program in order to establish the level of prevalence prior to setting an eradication date. Besides long-term testing, industry is calling for a compensation program for farmers who report unusual deaths in their flocks.

Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) incidence in Taiwan and announces two new highly probable cases of sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD)

 

According to the result of the third case investigation in 2011 conducted by the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) working group of the Taiwan Neurological Society, the Taiwan Centers for Disease Control (Taiwan CDC) announces the latest updates on the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) surveillance data and reports two highly probable cases of sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD). Between 1997 and March of 2011, a total of 439 suspected CJD cases were reported and investigated in Taiwan, including 259 probable, highly probable and confirmed CJD cases. Of the 259 cases, 255 cases are sCJD cases, including 27 probable, 226 highly probable and 2 confirmed sCJD cases, 3 cases are confirmed genetic CJD (gCJD) cases, and one case is a highly probable variant CJD (vCJD) case imported from the UK. Over the past decade, the annual CJD incidence rate in Taiwan is approximately 0.5~1 case per 1,000,000 persons, which is similar to that in other countries around the world.

 

There are four types of CJD: sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD), acquired CJD, genetic CJD and bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE)-related variant CJD (vCJD). sCJD accounts for about 80~90% of all CJD cases. sCJD is believed to result from the build-up of abnormal prion proteins. Acquired CJD is usually transmitted through certain medical procedures such as injections of contaminated pituitary growth hormone and grafts of contaminated dura mater.

 

Taiwan CDC states that CJD is listed as one of the Category IV Notifiable Infectious Diseases in Taiwan and Taiwan has a comprehensive approach to managing CJD, including a case reporting system, a disease surveillance system, a case investigation mechanism, nosocomial infection control guidelines, and case reporting guidelines. When a probable, highly probable or confirmed case is reported, Taiwan CDC will request the Taiwan Blood Services Foundation, the Bureau of Medical Affairs and the diagnosing hospital in writing to tighten their implementation of blood safety strategies, graft control measures and nosocomial transmission and infection control measures to reduce the risk of transmission. For more information on CJD, please visit the Taiwan CDC’s website: http://www.cdc.gov.tw/
