HOUSTON, TX – It’s official! Texas is number four on the list. But it is a list you really do not want to be on.

Researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say they confirmed that an unidentified man died in an unnamed Texas hospital, sometime last month, from a brain disorder associated with Mad Cow Disease.

The Texas Department of State Health Services is taking the lead on this medical investigation.

It won’t say who the man was, where he died, or when he died. One news source says he died in Houston.

They did confirm, though that this is the fourth case, ever, of variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease to hit the United States, and that the man probably picked up the rare and fatal brain disorder during his frequent trips to Europe and the Middle East.

Researchers say Mad Cow Disease is the underlying cause.

They say humans get Creutzfelt-Jakob Disease after eating meat from cows infected with Mad Cow.

It’s not supposed to be contagious, and we’re told not to panic, or even worry.

Just don’t eat any meat from cows that can’t stand on their own four feet.
