Abstract

This article explores the potential for public authority liability should an outbreak 01 variant Creutzfeldl-Jacob Disease occur in Australia, Discussion will focus on authorities which are empowered to watch over the importation of consumable beef products that could seriously threaten public health. This analysis is hypothetical. While no cases have yet been recorded in Australia, the spectre of mass contamination lends considerable imperative to appropriate governmental response.
