Monday 27 January 2014 (4 years 24 days ago)

A positive case of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PED) has been confirmed in Canada. PED was diagnosed in the US in May 2013, and has since spread to 23 states.

A farrow to finish farm in Middlesex County, Ontario has been the first in Canada to be confirmed infected by Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea.

The first clinical signs were identified Tuesday, samples were collected and submitted to animal health laboratories Wednesday and they confirmed a positive test late Wednesday night.

Canadian pork industry stakeholders have worked together to develop contingency plans and to prevent its spread across the border. The Canadian Swine Health Board (CSHB) was notified as soon as the case was confirmed, and is working with industry and government stakeholders.
