WINNIPEG, Manitoba (Reuters) - China has lifted its ban on Canadian beef, which it imposed in February after Canada's first discovery of mad cow disease since 2ca011, news website iPolitics said on Friday.

The website cited Canadian Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz saying that shipments had resumed.

A spokesman for Ritz could not be immediately reached.
