Nebih lifts restrictions related to bird flu

Food safety authority Nebih has lifted all restrictions imposed to prevent the spread of bird flu in Hungary, the authority said on Tuesday.

The last two counties under restrictions, Bacs-Kiskun and Csongrad-Csanad, in southern Hungary, have not reported cases in poultry since April, Nebih said. As a result, transportation of poultry from Hungary to domestic and EU destinations is now uninterrupted, the statement said. Some third country restrictions will have to be lifted by the World Organization for Animal Health (WOAH), the statement noted.

Nebih warned farmers to continue to adhere to regulations to prevent bringing the virus to the country again.
