The BSE Crisis
Since the Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) crisis began in May of 2003, Canadian consumers have supported their beef farmers by buying more beef than ever. Canada remains the only country in the world to have ever had a case of BSE and had consumer consumption rise. Consumers are reminded to ask retailers, restauranteurs and hoteliers if the beef they're serving is Canadian.
