Manitoban Mad Cow Not Made Into Burgers

So it turns out that the Canadian cow that was found to have BSE last month never entered the food supply. Straight from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's own site:
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has concluded its epidemiological investigation of the case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) confirmed on July 3, 2006 in a cow from Manitoba. No part of the animal’s carcass entered the human food or animal feed chains.
An interesting thing I didn't realize: the cow was 16 years old.
