The investigation into a case of Bovine TB that was identified in BC back in November has now expanded into Alberta and Saskatchewan. 

Lab tests confirmed the case of Bovine TB in an animal from a farm in the Southern Interior of British Columbia.

CFIA officials report that no portion of the animal entered the food chain and there is no concern to human health.

The CFIA and the Province of BC are working on tracing animal movements over the past five years in and out of the infected herd.

So far, the CFIA has placed movement controls on 15 thousand cattle from herds in BC and  Alberta and cattle in one herd in central Saskatchewan.
