I'm no expert, Just try to keep well informed. The large producers of cattle may feed mixes with animal parts in them however the government has increased its testing as well as the producers themselves. The producers do not want to get run out of business or kill anyone either, it's their reputations on the line as well. IIt can be passed along genetically by infected breed cows which is what happened out west the other yr. Most producers are very aware of preventative measures and are implementing them. If you aren't sure then don't buy from the chain grocery stores, find local small beef producers and butcher shops that you can visit and check out the living environments and feed types used. They are everywhere, little back yard 4-Hers and hobby farmers that would love to give you info and sell you their product. Hope this eases your minds a little.
