Mad Cow Disease Outbreak in the United States

Following the Story in USA Today

slide3
“The 10,410 pounds of meat produced at Vern's Moses Lake Meats in Moses Lake, Wash., on Dec. 9 — where the infected animal was slaughtered — has since made its way to groceries and distributors in Alaska, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Guam, Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Washington, the USDA's Ron DeHaven said Sunday. “

Risk Estimates

The risk of someone in the USA being infected right now is "infinitesimal," said Fred Kilbourne, an actuary in San Diego and an expert on risk. He calculates the prospect as one in 1 million, the same as the risk of being killed in a crash of a commercial jet. "The average American is twice as likely to be killed next year in a bicycle accident, and 150 times as likely to be killed in an automobile accident, and about 1,500 times as likely to die of clogged arteries," he says.
