Chronic wasting disease Update  

 

CWD precautions for handling and processing deer.

Chronic wasting disease, or CWD, is a fatal disease that attacks whitetail deer, blacktail deer, mule deer, and elk. Scientists believe it is caused by a protein called a prion. Prions concentrate where there is a lot of nerve tissue, such as the brain, spinal cord, eyes, and in the lymph nodes and spleen. Prions haven’t been found in meat (muscle tissue). Because we know where prions are found, Wisconsin’s Food Safety Division recommends these common-sense measures to remove them from venison products.

According to the World Health Organization, there is no evidence that chronic wasting disease passes to human beings.
