FSIS says testing confirms meat supply is safe

The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service says beef muscle sampling of cull dairy cows confirms that the meat supply is safe.  

The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service analyzed samples from 109 cull dairy cows using PCR tests to determine the presence of the virus. 108 of the 109 samples tested negative for viral particles. Viral particles were detected on May 24th in tissue samples, including the diaphragm muscle from one cow.   

No meat from these dairy cattle entered the food supply. 

FSIS says there are multiple safeguards in place to protect consumers.
