Well, there were already potentially-worrying prior conditions in other critters anyway. I've never trusted that eating an animal with one kind of prion that's homologous to something in my brain is worse than eating an animal with another kind of prion sharing homology to a different part of my brain.

Of course, for bonus points, you have this article:

The actual article in in Science Express. Prions migrating toward inflammation sites. No meat is safe! (Maybe. :) )
