I have read this is a result of the testing methods used. AGFC has apparently been using a process called the Elisa(sp) method. This process give fast turnaround compared to the IHC method that takes weeks. If I recall correctly how that was explained to me years ago the Elisa method can give false positives but will not give false negatives. I am accepting the lab folks word on that. The IHC method does not have this drawback but is more expensive, time intensive and takes weeks to give results. Supposedly any new locations found by the Elisa method will be retested using the IHC procedure. AGFC may have probably not made public the results so quickly but since they had to inform the hunter of the potential of contamination the lid was essentially off anyway.
Anyway you have an explanation.
