CANADIAN STUDY FAILS TO CONFIRM LINK BETWEEN FEED, PEDV
Farm Progress reports:

Scientific testing by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) cannot confirm a link between feed containing blood plasma and porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) cases in Canada, the agency said this week.

In mid-February, the CFIA conducted a bioassay study on U.S.-origin porcine blood plasma used in feed pellets.

The study demonstrated that the porcine blood plasma in question contained PEDV capable of causing disease in pigs; however, the study could not demonstrate that the feed pellets containing the blood plasma were capable of causing disease.
