Notice of certification and of national partial settlement of the BSE class actions



    WATERLOO, ON, Sept. 29 /CNW/ - Crawford Class Action Services reports
that a national partial class action Settlement Agreement has been reached
between the plaintiffs and Ridley Inc. relating to class action lawsuits that
were commenced in Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan and Alberta in 2005. The
lawsuits alleged that Ridley Inc. manufactured infected feed fed to a cow
diagnosed with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) on May 20, 2003. The
Settlement does not constitute any admission of liability by Ridley Inc. who
denies wrongdoing on its part.
    The court in Ontario has also certified the action as a class action
against the government of Canada, but the government is seeking leave to
appeal the certification order. Notice will be provided of the Ontario court's
certification of the BSE class action against the government of Canada if the
certification decision is not overruled on appeal.
