PORCINE EPIDEMIC DIARRHEA (PED) VIRUS
PED does not affect humans or other animals and does not pose a food safety risk.
Saskatchewan PEDv Surveillance: The first ever PED-positive sample under the provincial site surveillance program was detected towards the end of January 2015. The positive sample came from manure at the unloading chute that was spilled from the delivery trucks; trucks came from out-of-province. The same sample was also positive for TGE. All samples collected at this site since then have been negative for PED and TGE.
