Canada: CFIA statement on Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus in feed

Testing with a swine bioassay has determined that the plasma ingredient contains PED virus capable of causing disease in pigs.

Monday 24 February 2014 (3 years 11 months 26 days ago)

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is conducting science-based testing to determine if feed may be a contributing factor in the current Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus (PEDv) situation.

As a precautionary measure, on February 9, 2014, Grand Valley Fortifiers issued a voluntary recall for certain pelleted swine nursery feed products containing porcine plasma.

Testing has determined that PED virus was present in samples of US-origin plasma obtained at the third-party manufacturer for Grand Valley Fortifiers. This plasma was used as an ingredient in feed pellets produced by the company. Testing with a swine bioassay has determined that the plasma ingredient contains PED virus capable of causing disease in pigs.

Further testing will be done to assess if the feed pellets are capable of causing disease in piglets, and results are expected within days.
