Discoverd by and named after them in 1960.
vCJD is not the same a CJD
Its a different disease.
Its not the SAME.
CJD is irrelevant as it is not caused by BSE and is significantly different.
vCJD was discovered in the 1990's and was named as such because of the similar effects it has on the brain.
Do you understand?
Supply Chain management is 'vague waffle
The waffle is your claim that super efficient processes immediately pinned down the source of the meat. It hasn't. There is no 'supply chain management'.
There is no traceability.
Nobody has any idea where the meat came from or where it went.
The procedures that were put in because of BSE are very evidently not working. This is the scandal.
As I seay, with the beef issue, it was entirely transparent. Well publicised, fully investigated. No cover-ups.
Over a decade of insisting BSE was no threat to human health, refusing to act when the prion jumped from Sheep, to cattle to cats (for years) until dead humans could be sliced up.
BSE disaster was a good example of open and transparent handling of a food scare?? Amazing claim, utter rubbish.
Important that the same happens here
I agree, but if they did this after BSE scare (and the other scandals such as selling condemned chicken etc) they will do the same again in future. The only answer is to avoid process meat product for the rest of your life.
The supposed 'quality' and branding of food is undermined when you discover Findus buy anonymous lasagna from foreign factories with no quality control whatsoever, and the supermarkets are doing the same thing.
This French company quite obviously has been buying horse meat deliberately, the difference to beef must have been obvious.
