There's a new case of mad cow disease in this country. The U.S. Department of Agriculture confirms the disease has been found in a dairy cow in California.
Despite the new case, federal health officials don't want you to worry because the animal never entered the food supply.
They say it's an isolated case, not the start of an epidemic.
The infected dairy cow was detected through random testing at a plant in California. The plant converts animal byproducts such as tissue and bone meal into other items.
It's the country's first confirmed case of mad cow disease in 6 years.
