The USDA completed its investigation into last year's California BSE-infected dairy cow and found that the BSE was "atypical BSE". 

Atypical BSE is not caused by eating animal proteins, like the UK BSE in the 1990s.  Instead, atypical BSE occurs naturally and randomly, when "a protein the body normally harbors folds into an abnormal shape called a prion, setting off a chain reaction of misfolds that eventually kill brain cells."

This is good news for US cattlemen, both because the infected animal was discovered and because its cause was natural.
