Hooked - (Stacia Naquin)
Updated: 10/11/2013 - I'm SO CLOSE to being able to do a pull-up. So my trainer introduced something new into my training.
Health officials are starting to connect the dots on how the first cow infected with mad cow disease entered the United States.
The Department of Agriculture says they believe the cow was one of 74 others imported from Canada more than 2 years ago.
They add a search is now going on to find the others and should be completed within the next several days.
The discovery of the disease has halted most exports of American beef and caused food and restaurant company stocks to tumble.
People who eat brain and spinal matter from an infected cow can develop a fatal brain disease themselves. But Dr. Ron DeHaven, of the Department of Agriculture, says dairy products are safe.
"There is no scientific evidence to suggest that milk or diary products carry the agent that causes BSE and, therefore, no scientific evidence to suggest that milk or diary products will be responsible for transmitting the disease to other animals or to people."
Mad cow disease is the unofficial name for bovine spongiform encephelopathy or BSE.
Colorado's Agriculture Commissioner says the state is ready to act if authorities determine the disease has spread.
