We also had mad cow in Canada

The Yanks had one of those last election I believe.

All jokes aside BSE and other forms of mess will likely spring up as we (humans) keep screwing around with feeding ruminants meat based proteins and so on.

I view China's problems with securing their food supply as being a phase a nation goes through, it's certainly not much worse than the 19th century in many parts of the west where adulteration of food was highly common, for example using cement powder to bulk up bread production and keep the amount of flour used at a minimum in order to save money.  All sorts of additives that would be banned outright today and many other examples I could cite.

A few examples of food fraud in the west in the past few years.
2017 Brazil - Massive fraud revolving around meat and it being unfit for consumption. The two largest producers / packagers of meat and embroiled in an ongoing and deeply disturbing deception that is global in reach.

2013 - Europe horse meat scandal.  Fancy horse meat burgers or lasagne? This one caused a hell of a stink.

Europe / America - Sale of rancid "olive oil". This is a never ending nightmare that's been known about for a decade or so and so far little has been done to stop the practice on a global scale.

Other favourites for the adulteration business include "organic foods", coffee, honey and wine have all had massive global scandals in recent years.

That's pretty much the case. Greed and simply not giving a damn as it's going to the 3rd world etc.
