Wendy's Comments on Canadian Beef Scare
"Canadian and U.S. health authorities said that risk to human health and the possibility of transmission to animals in the U.S. and Canada is very low.
"There is no evidence that the situation in Canada warrants changes in our business approach at this time.
"Canadian authorities said that beef from this one cow did not enter the food chain, and the BSE guidelines that have been in place in Canada since the early 1990s are working.
"Wendy's conducts regular audits of its beef suppliers, using third party and trained Wendy's auditors, to validate compliance with government food safety guidelines.”
About 350 of the 6,300 Wendy's locations are in Canada.
